Friday 12 February 2021
Due to today’s announcement of Stage 4 Restrictions for Victoria, Geelong Regional Library Corporation will be closing all branches and mobile library services from Friday 12 February (at the usual branch closing time) until at least Thursday 18 February 2021 pending any further instructions from the State Government.
While we are disappointed to close our doors again, we remain dedicated to doing our bit to protect the health and wellbeing of our community and our staff. We look forward to seeing our communities when we re-open.
During this period, external returns chutes will be closed. However, due dates for borrowed items have been extended until libraries re-open and no fines will be issued during this period.
During lockdown, we recommend you also visit our Your Library @ Home - a hub for entertaining, educational and informative video content, podcasts, downloadable resources and links for children, young people and adults.
Our eCollection is available to all library members, and includes a wide range of eBooks, eAudiobooks, newspapers, magazines and film, video and content, plus a range of useful and interesting resources.
Physical library events and programs remain suspended until further notice; however we are pleased to continue to offer diverse and high quality online events. You can also access recordings of previous events dating back to March 2020. See our online Story Time@Home events here, upcoming and past author talks here, and all online events and workshops here.
To stay up-to-date with the latest news from the library, we recommend you sign up for our monthly eNewsletter, follow us on social media and keep an eye on the dedicated Coronavirus page on our website, which will be updated regularly.
For further information on COVID-19 and how to best manage your risks please visit the Department of Health & Human Services website.
Thank you for your understanding and support. We hope you and your loved ones keep safe during this difficult time.
