Welcome to Colac Otway Shire!

Thursday 1 July 2021

We are very pleased to welcome our new library members from the Colac Otway Shire!

The Geelong Regional Libraries’ (GRLC) network has increased to include two new branches – Colac Community Library and Learning Centre and Apollo Bay Library – and Mobile Library services in Colac Otway Shire.

For those people who were active Corangamite Regional Library Corporation library members, and living in Colac Otway Shire, your library membership has automatically been transferred to the GRLC. You should have received an email from us with more information, but if you haven’t received an email, or you are an inactive member, then please pop into Colac or Apollo Bay Library - staff will be happy to help. You can also find out more on our website here.

We’d also like to invite any non-library members to join our club! A library membership is free and gives you access to a huge range of services and benefits. Visit your local branch or click here to sign up now.
