A Family Fun Day was held at Cranbourne West Community Hub on Saturday 17 February to celebrate the opening of Connected Libraries’ (CL) new library lounge.

A formal ribbon cutting started the day, followed by various free activities including face painting, giant bubble, Storytimes, giveaways, a sausage sizzle, performances, and an animal petting zoo.

More than 1000 people revelled in the joyful atmosphere, and the library attained lots of new members afterward.

The new Cranbourne West Library Lounge was launched in January at Cranbourne West Community Hub.

CL members can borrow, return, and renew items at the new lounge. Free Wi-Fi and public computers are available for use. Storytimes and regular programs will operate from the lounge.

The Library Lounge will be open from 9am to 5pm Monday to Friday and will be staffed a few hours each day.
