Public libraries are expected to do much more than curate collections and lend books. In a time of rapid change, libraries have a core role promoting literacy, providing free access to information, encouraging a culture of lifelong learning and contributing to positive socio-economic outcomes across the community.
Casey Cardinia Libraries is one of Victoria’s largest public library services. We are funded principally by the City of Casey, Cardinia Shire and the Victorian State Government. We support a rapidly growing and diverse community of over 400,000 people.
Our libraries are located at Cranbourne, Doveton, Emerald, Endeavour Hills, Hampton Park, Narre Warren and Pakenham.
The Cardinia Mobile Library provides a weekly service to Beaconsfield, Bunyip, Cockatoo, Garfield, Gembrook, Koo Wee Rup, Lang Lang, Maryknoll, Nar Nar Goon, Tynong and Upper Beaconsfield.
In 2016 -17 we had approximately 115,000 members and received 2 million visits across the network.
Forecasts estimate that the population of City of Casey and Cardinia Shire council will exceed 650,000 people within twenty years.
