On Tuesday 26th April approx. twenty members and friends of our Club enjoyed a visit to the new Geelong Library in Johnston Park Lt. Malop Street end.
We gathered on the ground floor of library at 7:00 p.m. and then were taken on a one hour guided tour of all the levels except the top level which being used for a wedding reception.
The spectacular Dome’s levels, named in respect of the Wadawurrung people, the original custodians of the land on which the Centre is built, flow into one another and into the outside world via architectural voids and towering glazed walls.
