In line with recent Victorian Government advice, we are pleased to announce that Geelong Regional Libraries’ branches and mobile libraries will re-open to the public on Monday 7 June (at the regular branch opening time).
The health and safety of our community and staff remains our priority as we re-open branches and resume some services. Hygiene protocols and social distancing will continue, while compulsory face masks and density limits have been reintroduced. And of course, we ask everyone to please stay home if feeling unwell.
This means there may be some time limits on library visits to allow as many community members as possible to access our services. We thank you for your patience and cooperation!
In order to comply with Victorian Government requirements, we will be asking everyone:
Return chutes at all library branches remain open 24/7.
Density limits mean that, unfortunately, some of our in-person events will be cancelled, postponed or transferred online next week.
Full details about our service at this time, including a list of frequently asked questions and answers, can be found on our dedicated Coronavirus page.
