Chilwell Library closed for refurbishments

Patrons are advised that Chilwell Library is closed for refurbishments from Monday 18 March, and will reopen to the public on Thursday 4 April.

During the closure period, library holds will be relocated to the Geelong West Library. Any reserved items held at Chilwell which are uncollected at the time of the closure, or which are made during the closure period, will be relocated to Geelong West and may be collected from there.

As the returns chute at Chilwell will not be operational during the closure period, patrons are asked to return books to any other branch in the Geelong Regional Libraries network. Books due for return to Chilwell during this period will be automatically renewed.

To find out times of Preschool Storytime sessions taking place at other branches, please follow this link.

We apologise for any inconvenience caused by the temporary closure of the Chilwell Library, and look forward to welcoming customers back into the refreshed space on Thursday 4 April.
