Allowing residents to use the library at a time that suits them
Horley library will be the first to be fitted with new computer technology that allows registered library members to access the library during the new, extended opening hours, in addition to the existing staff hours.
The technology will initially be rolled out across 12 other key library sites across the county in phases, with completion expected by the end of 2024. These include the following locations:
During Super Access hours members can:
- Borrow, return & renew library items using self-service kiosks
- Use a free library computer or free library Wi-Fi and print documents
- Use study spaces
- Take part in activities provided by library partners
- Meet with friends or join a social group
- Search online reference services e.g. Ancestry
Who can use Super Access?
Super Access is available to those aged 16 and over. Library users will be provided with a short introduction on how to access the building and the services available by a member of library staff prior to signing up.
How do people access the library during Super Access hours?
Super Access library members will be able to enter the library using their library card and PIN code when the library is not staffed.
Super Access hours will initially be 8am to 9:30am and 5:15pm to 8pm. On days libraries are currently closed (for example Mondays at Horley) Super Access will be available from 8am to 8pm.
