Introducing the new library app!

Thursday 29 April 2021

We’re delighted to announce the launch of the first ever Geelong Regional Libraries’ app!

Simply download the app to your smart phone or tablet, and you can search the library catalogue; borrow, renew and place holds on collection items; book into library events; view your library account details; and more… all from the convenience of your mobile device.

The app can be downloaded, for free, from Google Play or the App Store – just search for ‘Geelong Libraries’.

If you need assistance, please speak with a staff member at your local branch – they will be happy to help.
