Events and activities at Byfleet Community Library

Libraries reopening news and updates

From Monday 12 April, in line with latest Government guidance, libraries across Surrey County Council will reopen for browsing and computer use. Full details on our Coronavirus information page.

Please note: due to the Coronavirus pandemic we are unable to offer our regular programme of events in the library. Surrey libraries are pleased to be offering a programme of online events including regular Rhymetimes and Storytimes.

Special events

Creative writing group

We are hoping to start a Creative Writing group shortly and would love you to join us. Great group for budding authors. If you are interested in joining the group, please call into the library and leave your name and phone number. Details are still to be finalised but we hope to start soon.


Volunteers needed: Do come and join us!

We are a lovely, friendly group who work hard to keep our library up and running, but we would welcome some more helpers please. Your commitment would be just one morning or afternoon every other week and, of course, full training is given. A love of books and reading helps. Please call in any time and anyone at the desk can help you. We look forward to seeing you soon. Thank you.
