We are excited to announce that Geelong Regional Libraries members now have access to BorrowBox Unlimited, which allows immediate access to a great selection of eBook and eAudiobook titles, without any loan queues.
The Unlimited selection has been expertly curated and includes in-demand titles and books from most-loaned authors. There are titles for children, YA and adults, and each month new books will be added to the library’s Unlimited selection.
If you are already accessing eBooks and eAudiobooks from BorrowBox then simply head to the library’s online catalogue or open your BorrowBox app to see our featured Unlimited titles. You can then download them instantly to listen or read right away – no queues and no holds!
Not familiar with BorrowBox? It’s an easy and free way to borrow eBooks and eAudiobooks from the library’s eCollection, using a free app which you can download on your smartphone or tablet. If you haven’t used BorrowBox before, just head to the library website and navigate to the 'Bolinda BorrowBox' section for instructions on how to get started, or speak with a member of staff. (Whilst libraries are temporarily closed, you can still call or email your local branch.)
Back to news
All Geelong Regional Library Corporation branches and mobile libraries will be closed from the usual branch closing time on Wednesday 5 August, for a period of at least six weeks.
The Leopold Library branch is closed following a confirmed case of Coronavirus (COVID-19) in a staff member of Geelong Regional Libraries.
Please note, you will be asked to present your GRLC library card and photo ID (showing your residential address) to the concierge when you enter a branch.
From late August 2020, we will be introducing exciting new ways for you to find out about what’s going on at the library.
Geelong Regional Libraries’ members are advised that some databases will be removed from the Collection in the coming months.
Geelong Regional Libraries is delighted to announce the winner of our ‘Amazing Lockdown’ Short Story Competition: Ben Mitchell, for his story titled ‘Tunundra Valley’.
