Geelong Library & Heritage Centre

Welcome to the spectacular home of the Word for Word National Non-Fiction Festival. How lucky are we?!
We can’t wait to get back here in 2021 to meet you in person, but in the meantime we are presenting an exciting Online Program from 20-22 November 2020 for you to enjoy, from where ever you call home… 
Inspirational, innovative and iconic: these are words with which the Geelong Library & Heritage Centre (the Dome) has already become synonymous.
Symbolic of the evolution of Geelong from a city founded on heavy industry to a centre for excellence, culture and learning, the Dome’s existence is the result of a bold and unwavering vision of the City of Greater Geelong and represents the culmination of many years of lobbying, planning and collaborative effort.
Sophisticated and technology-rich, this world-class facility is designed to meet the expectations of 21st century public library users, providing contemporary and innovative library and information services. It is also a vibrant gathering space for local residents, workers and visitors to enjoy – a tourist destination in the heart of Geelong’s cultural precinct.
Within the iconic domed building, there are five public levels – all beautiful, inspiring and inclusive spaces for reading, studying, meeting, discovery and fun.
