Libraries news and updates

We have completed the changes to our computer systems and most services are back up and running. You can now borrow, return, and renew items, make payments (in a library), borrow ebooks, eAudio and eResources and much more. We are still unable to offer some online services. For further details please see our library news page.

Summer Reading Challenge

Wild World Heroes, Summer Reading Challenge 2021 and the pre-school Mini Challenge officially ended in our libraries on Saturday 18 September. We hope that all children and their families have enjoyed the challenges this year.Two children holding up their Summer Reading Challenge certificates and medals Congratulations on becoming Wild World Heroes!

Each year the Challenge, presented by The Reading Agency and delivered by libraries, motivates children to keep reading to build their skills and conīŦdence. Children have to be a library member to take part, but participation is completely free, and they can collect special stickers and rewards along the way. The aim is to read up to six books, and children can read whatever they like from Surrey Libraries' excellent range, including eBooks and eAudiobooks!

The Summer Reading Challenge will be back again next summer. Keen to join more reading challenges with Surrey Libraries? Please keep an eye out on our webpages and social media channels for the Winter Mini Challenge which will launch in December 2021.
