Living Knowledge Network in Surrey libraries

We are excited to announce that Surrey Libraries are now a member of the Living Knowledge Network. Created by the British Library, the Living Knowledge Network is a UK wide partnership of national and public libraries centred on exchanging knowledge and developing world class, memorable experiences for public library users.

Being part of the Living Knowledge Network gives Surrey Libraries customers access to a vast array of cultural events within their local library, including exhibitions, screenings, talks and even livestreams that you can watch from home! This is part of our journey to transform our Surrey libraries into local cultural hubs.

Beyond the Bassline will be touring the following libraries:

The individual libraries will be holding related events around the exhibition. We will add further information once the details have been finalised.
