Cannons Creek Library

Welcome to Cannons Creek Library, nestled in the heart of the Cannons Creek Shops.

Welcome to Cannons Creek Library, nestled in the heart of the Cannons Creek Shops.

We're a small community library that aims to meet the needs of our community, with great books and practical services. 

We're not your average quiet library, particularly when we've got a school or kindy group in!  Feel free to pop in and read the paper, hop on a computer or just hang out and read.  After school our regulars drop by to work on their Library Avengers tasks, do a spot of colouring in, or play with the board games.

Location and contact
