Storytime

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.

Storytimes have gradually been reintroduced within selected libraries since July 2021. If you like to attend one of our successful and free Storytime sessions, please check individual library events pages for details. Find my nearest library.

If you have any queries regarding our Storytime sessions, please email libraries@surreycc.gov.uk

Library storytimes are generally aimed at two to five year olds and provide a fun and enjoyable introduction to books and libraries for young children.

Sharing books and stories with young children can help to build good language and listening skills and give them a head start when they begin school.

Library storytimes can foster a life long love of reading and show children that it is a fun place to be. Sessions are free and generally last 30 minutes.
