Tuesday 17 March 2020
Like all Australian organisations, we are facing the challenges of a quickly-changing landscape in response to the Coronavirus (COVID-19).
Keeping the community safe is our priority. As such, all Geelong Regional Library Corporation library branches and mobile libraries will close on Wednesday 18 March (at the usual branch closing time) until at least Tuesday 14 April 2020, to try to help slow the spread of the COVID-19 within our communities.
If you have items due for return within this period, you can renew them online or return items via one of the branch external return chutes which are open 24/7. You can also contact your local branch directly by phone.
Our many digital services remain available here, including eBooks and eAudiobooks, activities for children, streaming TV, movie and music services, digital newspapers and magazines.

Thank you for your understanding.
