Volunteering in libraries

Libraries reopening news and updates

45 libraries are now open for public access. For the latest updates and information on current library services, opening hours and how we are keeping customers and staff safe, visit our Coronavirus information page.

Libraries in Surrey will start to reopen from Monday 6 July, in line with government guidance. As customer and staff safety is a priority, libraries will be operating with reduced services and limited capacity in buildings and guidelines for social distancing.

As a result of these changes, we will not be recruiting new volunteers at present, in order to keep the number of people in a library to a minimum. We will follow official guidance and regularly assess the situation and when circumstances improve we will open up volunteering opportunities again. Please check this page at a later date for any changes to the situation.

Roles which we will be offering later in the year cover the following areas: Digital Support, Children's Activities, Library Direct home service, Opportunities for Young People and other more general roles to support libraries.

Thank you for your understanding of the current situation and we look forward to welcoming you to volunteer with us soon.
