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.
CCL is one of Victoria’s largest public library services. We are funded principally by the City of Casey, Cardinia Shire Council and the Victorian State Government. We support a rapidly growing and diverse community of more than 420,000 people.
The population of City of Casey and Cardinia Shire council is forecast to exceed 700,000 people within twenty years.
Our libraries are located at Bunjil Place, Cranbourne, Doveton, Emerald, Endeavour Hills, Hampton Park, 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.
