Bringing the Library to You
Many Victorian businesses have had to pivot during lockdown, and our local libraries have been no exception.
Luckily, like many, Casey Cardinia Libraries (CCL) has done a lot of amazing work to continue providing their services to the community, virtually!
Library at home
Libraries don’t just curate collections and lend books. At least, not for CCL! The wonderful staff and partners here have put together a range of online content to keep you and your kids entertained at home. From Tinies Time for babies and toddlers, and STEAM ideas through to book reviews, author Q&As and so much more, there’s something for everyone of all ages to enjoy.
Plus, to ensure bookworms far and wide can still enjoy the library’s services even in lockdown, CCL also offers free home delivery and click and collect! This service allows people to borrow library books, DVDs and other items from the safety of home, you just have to be a CCL member and local resident to partake.
The heart of the local community
CCL is one of Victoria’s largest public library services, supporting a rapidly growing and diverse community of more than 420,000 people. They operate several locations across the southeast, including Bunjil Place, Doveton, Emerald, Endeavour Hills, Hampton Park, Pakenham and Cranbourne – being only 9 minutes away from residents at The Junction.
Offering more than just a great selection of books, CCL provides an amazing range of services to the community. From promoting children’s literacy to providing free access to information and encouraging a culture of lifelong learning, public libraries like CCL are an integral part of the community, and a great way to find your place if you’re new to the area! And let’s not forget, when libraries are up and running as usual, they offer a bunch of handy things. Think free internet (great if your Wi-Fi isn’t hooked up quite yet), printing and photocopying, meeting rooms and book groups!
