Major Transport Works this Autumn

Friday, 29 March 2019

We wish to advise our members of some construction works in the KCC Park area between Monday 1 April and Tuesday 23 April. These works will continue across the metropolitan and regional train networks to:

• build the Metro Tunnel
• remove level crossings
• upgrade regional lines.

Delays are expected on the Monash Freeway, Nepean Highway and Princes Highway due to rail works on the Frankston, Pakenham, Cranbourne and Sandringham lines. We encourage you to plan ahead, allow more time for your journey or avoid the peak, if you can.

VicRoads thanks you for your patience while they improve our transport network.

Library News

Thursday, 28 March 2019

The Laurie Luxmoore Library is now accessible worldwide.

Behind the scenes the Library Committee have been working on a major project to have KCC journals digitised on Trove.

Trove is an Australian online library database program and free faceted-search engine hosted by the National Library of Australia.  It is one of the most well respected and accessed GLAM (Galleries, Libraries, Archives and Museums) services in Australia with over 70,000 daily users.

It is a major accomplishment to have our journals available on Trove.  You can even search your dog’s family history too.

If the only thing you do today is check out these titles, you’ve spent the day wisely.
