Shaping your library's future

Wondering where to next for libraries in our region? We want to hear from you! We are developing our Library Plan 2021–2025 and we want to know your ideas.

About Geelong Regional Libraries

The Geelong Regional Library Corporation provides library and information services to residents and visitors across the Geelong region on behalf of our four member councils: Borough of Queenscliffe, City of Greater Geelong, Golden Plains Shire and Surf Coast Shire. The Colac Otway Shire will be joining the network in July 2021. Find out more

We are developing our Library Plan 2021–2025

A Library Plan provides a clear framework to steer the course of the Geelong Regional Library Corporation over the next four years (view our current Library Plan 2017-2021), and we’re currently developing our new plan.

To help in the development of our next Library Plan, we want to hear what you think:
• How can one of the best library services in Victoria be even better? 
• What is needed to make sure you get the most out of your library service over the next four years?

Your ideas will help shape the plan, and the future direction of library services in this region.

    We are inviting members of the public to complete a short survey. This survey should take no longer than a few minutes to complete, and there are great prizes on offer! The survey will be open from Friday 5 March until Friday 16 April 2021.
