In support of local students across the region, Casey Cardinia Libraries (CCL) are opening up dedicated quiet spaces for students to bunker down during the exam period.
CCL CEO, Chris Buckingham, said: “One of the recurring themes from our community survey was ongoing concerns about noise levels. We’re responding promptly - with the impending exam season looming, this is now a priority. We’ve always offered free Wi-Fi, but now each library will also offer free refreshments for students putting in long hours.”
In further good news, Doveton and Pakenham Libraries are trialling new opening hours starting from October 2017 and running through to March 2018, Doveton now open on a Wednesday for the first time! Local community response on hearing the news has been ‘fantastic’, Chris Buckingham said.
“Doveton Library will open on Wednesdays from 1.30pm to 8pm commencing 4 October while Pakenham Library will increase its open hours on Fridays to 8pm from 6 October, and Sundays 1pm to 4pm from 1 October.”
To celebrate the new opening hours, both Libraries are holding a series of FREE events for kids and adults. Check the CCL website for details – http://www.cclc.vic.gov.au
