GALLERY: Story Bank casts its magical spell over M'boro

WHAT once stood as an empty shell in the Maryborough CBD has become a labour of love for those who love stories and the arts.

The former Australian Joint Stock Bank was crammed with people young and old for the opening of the Maryborough Story Bank.

The new centre features interactive displays, reading spaces and special items from the estate of Mary Poppins author PL Travers.
