Posted: Friday 10 May 2019

Federation University Australia students, local secondary school students and Cranbourne library visitors are enjoying the benefits of a new library study space to collaborate and learn.

Situated at the Cranbourne branch of Casey Cardinia Libraries, the study space includes a reading lounge, individual study carrels, work spaces, free wi-fi for library members, and access to library facilities including collections, printing and information support.

The study space accommodates individual quiet study and also a variety of group work as many students like to learn with others. Cranbourne library staff are also on hand to assist.
