Limited Golden Plains Mobile Library service

With the Golden Plains Mobile Library vehicle currently undergoing urgent mechanical repairs, a limited service will replace the regular Mobile Library service on this route until further notice. 

Customers can continue to receive their reserved items and will be able to browse a small collection, however patrons are urged to reserve items they would like to read as the available browsing collection will be limited. Reserves can be made online at or by calling any Geelong Regional Libraries branch. 

The Mobile Library vehicle is expected to be back on the road in approximately five weeks, however we advise customers to check for further news on our website or contact 5272 2388 for the most up to date information. 

We apologise for any inconvenience caused and look forward to seeing customers at their usual stops from Thursday 8 November.
