Exciting changes on the way!

Tuesday 23 June 2020

We are busy planning for some exciting changes to the way we communicate with you about library events and programs.

These changes – which are scheduled to come into effect from the end of August 2020 – will make it easier for you to find out about the events and programs which interest you, and will simplify the event booking process online.

Parts of the library website, as well as our monthly eNewsletter and printed materials, like the What’s On at the Library brochure, will be revamped as part of this change. 

We’re also very pleased to announce that a new Geelong Regional Libraries’ app will be launched at this time! The app will be like having the library in your pocket – you will be able to search the library catalogue and place holds, book into events, view your library account details, book meeting rooms and more… all from the convenience of your mobile device.

Over the coming weeks we will provide more information about what you can expect, as well as opportunities to participate in training sessions with a librarian – so you can make the most of the library app and new functions on the library website.

So stay tuned! Information will be shared on the news section of our website, in posters and fliers in branches, on our social media channels and via our monthly eNewsletter.   

A message about the What’s on at the Library brochure:

Due to Coronavirus (COVID-19), all ‘in person’ library events and programs remain suspended until further notice. As such, you will not see the winter edition of our What’s On brochure in branches. Please continue to check our website for details of our online events and programs, and updates about changes to services during the pandemic
