The Geelong Regional Library Corporation's Annual Report 2017-2018 is now available to view online or please visit one of our 16 library branches (and two mobile libraries) to view a hard copy of the report.
The report records our progress and celebrates our achievements throughout the 2017-18 financial year.
Some of the many highlights include the development of a network-wide Access and Inclusion Plan; the launch of the Geelong Honours Them project; the highly-successful Word for Word National Non-Fiction Festival; and the celebration of milestones including the one millionth visitor to Geelong Library & Heritage Centre and the marking of 100,000 visits to the Geelong Heritage Centre.
Our 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, positioning the service as the number one performing library service in the State for the fourth year in a row.
