Research Room

We operate a research room at the Cranbourne Library and currently have 2 sessions a week. The room is manned by two volunteers at each session who can help you with your research and the use of the computers and family history software. We have 6 computers plus microfiche readers and microfiche, books, magazines, newsletters and various other resources. All our resources are catalogued and our volunteers are there to help you find the resources you’re looking for.

Our Research Room is at:

Cranbourne Library, 65 Berwick-Cranbourne Road, Cranbourne.

(Melways map ref. 134 Ref B6)

Our Research Room is open on Tuesdays and Saturdays from 11 am to 3 pm. We’re also open on Thursday nights between 7 and 9 pm until the end of April.

*Please note that on the third Saturday of the month during May, June, July, August and September the Research Room will close at 1.45 pm to allow the volunteers on duty to attend the general meeting.


We welcome visitors!
It’s not necessary to be a member to use our facilities, we will happily accommodate visitors in the research room and our volunteers will offer the same guidance and help to every visitor as they do members. All we ask is a $5 visitor’s fee per session.

Not sure if we’re the right place or group for you? Then why not pop in anytime we’re open and have a chat with our volunteers and get them to give you a quick tour of our resources and then decide – and of course, we won’t charge you for the chat, we only ask a fee if you come armed with pencil, paper and notes, ready to do serious research.
