Libraries reopening news and updates

From Monday 19 July we will be following step four of the Government guidelines in opening up our services. We recommend you wear a face covering when you visit. We may reduce capacity in some of our smaller libraries to allow everyone more space to enjoy their visit. Full details on our Coronavirus information page.

Rhymetimes will be slowly reintroduced within the libraries. To start with this will be at selected libraries only. These will be bookable and spaces will be limited. Please book on a session.

We will also continue to hold the online session see digital events and activities.

You can watch past online rhymetime sessions on our YouTube channel Surrey Libraries UK.

Pebble the penguin rhymetimes

Introduce your baby to songs, rhymes and books at your library!

Pebble the penguin rhymetime sessions are aimed at babies and toddlers, aged under five, along with their mums, dads and carers. The events are based entirely on sharing nursery rhymes, action songs and percussion music. It is fun, interactive and noisy!

Nursery rhymes are great for language development, they have a lot of rhythm which catch baby's attention, and repetition, which is good for speech development. It is also a nice way of introducing babies and toddlers to their local library!

Rhymetimes are free and are a great opportunity for dads, mums, carers and children to make new friends in a relaxed setting.
