Geelong Regional Libraries is a member of the Victorian public library system, basing our charter on the UNESCO Manifesto on Public Libraries.
This manifesto provides that services are provided on the basis of equality of access for all, regardless of age, race, sex, religion, nationality, language or social status.
Inclusiveness, fairness, compassion and respect are values we believe in emphatically and we support marriage equality because it is consistent with these values. All Australians deserve to be treated equally under the law.
As such, we support a Yes vote in the Australian Federal Government’s marriage law postal survey. We also accept that opinion is divided on this issue and hope for a respectful dialogue during the process.

Our Annual Report 2016/17 is now available and reports on another successful year for the Geelong Regional Library Corporation.
Our libraries observe the following holidays according to their municipalities:
Geelong Show - Friday 20 October, Geelong Cup - Wednesday 25 October and Melbourne Cup - Tuesday 7 November.
For the fourth year running, the Geelong Regional Library Corporation has been rated as Victoria’s highest ranking public library service.
All libraries except the Geelong Library & Heritage Centre and Western Heights College will be closed on Tuesday 10 October for the annual staff day.
Public, located in the Geelong Library & Heritage Centre is now open.
The painting of Geelong’s first Town Clerk, William Weire, normally adorns the corridors of City Hall but detective work uncovering the identity of the artist has led to the painting going on loan to the Queen Victoria Museum and Art Gallery in Launceston, Tasmania.
