All libraries are closed on public holidays.
Ocean Grove is the largest town on the Bellarine and boasts a long library history – a free library opened in the public hall in 1910 and our current library includes a City of Greater Geelong service point and was opened as part of The Grove Centre in 1993. Renovations in 2014 improved the floor area, technology and services available. This busy library has frequent children’s activities enlivening the space and reflecting the diverse demographics of our community.
Baby Time: Every Thursday 11.30am, except during January.
Toddler Time: Every Wednesday 10.30am, during school terms.
