Shut but still open
We have published a list of online services, activities and fun things for both children and adults to do whilst at home.
Surrey Library members have access to a wide range of eLibrary services:
- eMagazines and eComics
- Classic titles
- eBooks and eAudiobooks for Reading groups
- Online reference shelf
eBooks are now available through the RBdigital service.
The easiest way to access the service is to download the RBdigital app to your tablet or smartphone, just search for the app via the app store (iPad or iPhone), Google Play store (Android devices), or Amazon app store (Kindle Fire).
When you download the app you will need to register for the service. In the app, just touch where it says 'Not a member? Register now' and you will be asked to enter some details including your Surrey library card number (either starting UNREG or the 7 digit number on your library card).
If you wish to access the service via a PC or Mac you can do this on the RBdigital website and click where it says 'Register'.
If you need help using either the app or the website then RBdigital have provided a range of guides to help you access the service.
