The Geelong Regional Library Corporation provides library and information services to the residents and visitors across the Geelong region on behalf of the four member councils: Borough of Queenscliffe, City of Greater Geelong, Golden Plains Shire and the Surf Coast Shire. Through a network of the Geelong Library & Heritage Centre, 15 community libraries, two mobiles and a website, the GRLC provides free, universal access to lifelong learning, reading and discovery.
The GRLC was formed in March 1997 under the provisions of sections 196 and 197 of the Local Government Act 1989 to provide services for these municipalities. Featuring the major regional city of Geelong, the area served also includes rural farming areas and coastal villages as well as larger tourist destinations like Torquay and Ocean Grove. The population increases with visitors and holiday makers in the summer months.
