We read to know we are not alone.
Help us continue our free book deliveries and outreach services to community in need.
During this pandemic, we’ve all experienced what it’s like to be isolated – we’ve known fear, boredom and loneliness. Imagine however if this was your daily life even without the threat of COVID-19.
For many people in our community, this is what life is always like. Sadly, in Casey Cardinia, there are many older or vulnerable people who are unable to leave their homes. Worse, they may be unable to afford internet, e-readers and computers to help the time pass and connect to others. With your support, these people can feel less alone.
Since March, our library has been delivering book bags, audio books, and digital services to people in their homes. While the library is reopening gradually, many in our community continue to be isolated at home. To continue the delivery service, we need your help.
$30 will provide 3 deliveries to someone unable to leave their house.
$50 will provide 5 deliveries to an isolated older person.
$100 will enable the library to deliver a digital program to help people connect to new ideas and each other.
$500 will allow the library to lend a PC or laptop to a person in need for 6 months.
At Casey Cardinia Libraries, we use the GiveEasy platform so your donations are secure. We will also send a receipt straight to your email. All donations over $2 are tax-deductible. Donate using a credit card or call us on 1800 577 548 and we can help you over the phone.
Update: as of June 23 we are no longer running a home delivery service. Thank you for all your generous support.
If you shop at Ritchies, you can also contribute by nominating Casey Cardinia Libraries as the community organisation you want to support. For every $10 you spend the Home Delivery Service Fundraiser gets 5c… so every dollar you spend counts! Which allows us to continue FREE Home Delivery for all Casey Cardinia Residents. Donating is easy. Simply download the Ritchies Card App on your smartphone or use your physical card and nominate CCL as your chosen charity.
