April public holiday closures

Monday 11 April 2022

All libraries in the Geelong Regional Libraries’ network will be closed over the Easter period, starting from Thursday 14 April at 5pm, and reopening on Tuesday 19 April.

For our mobile libraries, following service changes apply Thursday 14 April:

  • Colac Otway Mobile Library will not run 
  • Bellarine & Surf Coast Mobile Library will close at 4.00pm at Anglesea (instead of 5.00pm)
  • Golden Plains Mobile Library will not visit Enfield


Libraries are also closed on Anzac Day, Monday 25 April.

All return chutes will remain open during this period and of course, our vast eCollection remains open 24/7.

We hope you have a safe Easter break and plenty of time for good books - and if you are heading away for the holidays, please stay safe on the roads.
