Everyone is welcome
Surrey libraries offer books and more. As thousands of residents face a challenging winter due to energy price increases, these community spaces at the heart of our towns and villages are offering warm spaces for residents to drop in for free.
You don't need to be a library member to come along, sit a while, warm up, have a free hot drink and meet others. And you don't need to read a book either if you don't want to, as there will be activities on offer to pass the time including, puzzles, colouring packs, card and board games, crochet sets and even knitting.
Everyone is welcome. Warm Welcome spaces are part of a national network of warm spaces being set up by local authorities, libraries, faith and community groups. To find your nearest Warm Welcome space visit find a warm welcome space today website.
In addition to Surrey libraries' Warm Welcome, district and borough councils, community groups and Surrey County Council also have Warm Hubs open across the county.
These are also spaces where residents are invited to come in, get warm, meet others and get free energy advice. To find out where your nearest Warm Hub is and opening times visit the warm hubs in Surrey web page.
