Until then, libraries will offer Ready Reads, the click-and-collect service and computers for essential use. Full details on our Coronavirus information page.

Library modernisation

Surrey County Council is planning to work closely with communities across the county to ensure their library services remain open with an updated library service that works for them. There are 52 libraries across Surrey now and the Council want to keep library services in each of the communities that they serve.
