Green image with white text: Libraries now open


All of our libraries and mobile libraries are open! We look forward to seeing you there. 

Like many organisations in our region, Geelong Regional Libraries has been heavily impacted by the recent surge in Covid-19 cases. Staff shortages have meant that we often need to close libraries at short notice or reduce operating hours.

To better help us respond to this situation, and provide a more continuous service to the community, we are changing our operating hours at many of our libraries during the period of Wednesday 30 March to Friday 1 July 2022. This will assist us to manage staffing requirements across all our libraries, and will minimise the need for last minute closures.

We thank you for your patience and understanding during these tricky times.

For further details about our service at this time, please explore the FAQs section at the bottom of this page.


We will continue to update this page with details relating to library services during this time. You can also stay updated with news from the library by:

• following our social media accounts (Facebook, Instagram and Twitter)
subscribing to our monthly eNewsletter
• signing up for email updates related to library services at this time.
