Annual Report 2018/19 now available

The Geelong Regional Library Corporation's Annual Report 2018/19 is now available to view online or in hard copy format at any of our 17 library branches and two Mobile Libraries.

The document reports on our progress and celebrates our achievements throughout the 2018/19 financial year.

Some of the highlights from a successful year for the organisation include the opening of the seventeenth branch in our library network (Leopold Library); the delivery of the highly-successful Word for Word National Non-Fiction Festival; a 5% increase in library membership across the network; and the position as the number one performing library service in the State for the fifth year in a row.

Our successful shared library services partnership between our four member councils – the Borough of Queenscliffe, City of Greater Geelong, Golden Plains Shire and Surf Coast Shire – continues to demonstrate the power of positive collaboration and leadership.
