Book Library 

Street Libraries are a beautiful home for books, right here in your local community!

Books come and go, no-one needs to check them in or out. People can simply reach in and take what interests them, when they are done they can return them, keep them, or pass them on to someone else.

If anyone has a book or two that they think others would enjoy, they can pop it into any Street Library they pass.

Browse our free outdoor library or our books indoors. We offer a collection of books to borrow or keep.

 

We would like to thank Monash Men’s shed for building the Library and Julie for painting it!

Community Pantry

 

Take what you need and give what you can!

The community Pantry is for everyone in our local community and is intended to help those who are in need.

Our pantry offers non-perishable food, toiletries, toys, clothing and practical items.

Our Community Pantry relies on the generosity of our locals, with regular donations from Encounter Baptist Church, Rotary, Charmaine and Siew, for which we are very thankful!

The pantry was built and donated by Monash Rotary and is in the process of being painted by Rachel and daughter Olivia.

Drop In Service

 

We have staff and volunteers who can provide advice, assistance or referrals to a range of services in our community.

We can help with form filling, grocery assistance, or a just a listening ear, cuppa and a chat.
