The Geelong Regional Library Corporation CEO Patti Manolis said the library would be “a real landmark for the city, which people can be really proud of” with its multifunctional spaces providing space for everybody.
“We want everyone to come in and feel a sense of wonder and excitement,” she said. “We want them to see the boldness of the exterior reflected in the services we offer and the spaces inside and we want them to come in and explore the building fully and to find the spaces they really love,” she said.
