Wednesday 17 February 2021

In line with advice received from the Victorian Government today, we are pleased to announce that Geelong Regional Libraries’ branches and mobile libraries will re-open to the public with regular operating hours on Thursday 18 February.

Customers and staff will be required to wear a mask when inside libraries, unless they have a lawful reason for not wearing one.

The health and safety of our community and staff remains our priority as we re-open branches and resume services. Strict hygiene and social distancing rules apply.

Return chutes at library branches will also be available again from Thursday 18 February.

Please refer to our dedicated Coronavirus webpage for full details about library services and operations at this time.

We look forward to welcoming you back to libraries from tomorrow!
