More libraries to reopen offering a click and collect service

From 3 August, a further 12 libraries will reopen offering a click and collect door service allowing customers to return their items, collect Ready Reads and reserved books. However, the public will not be allowed into the buildings for the time being.

This service will be available from the following libraries: Ash, Banstead, Bookham, Caterham Hill, Chertsey, Dittons, Ewell, Hersham, Knaphill Leatherhead, Reigate and Walton. Please check the opening times before you visit.

Surrey libraries computer access

Computer access is now available at the following libraries: Camberley, Dorking, Egham, Epsom, Farnham, Godalming, Guildford, Horley, Oxted, Redhill, Staines, Weybridge and Woking. Please read the guidelines for use on our Coronavirus information page

The library service is working hard to increase library opening hours but these will be built back up over time due to the additional capacity needed to manage the new required measures. Visit the Coronavirus information page to keep up to date with which libraries and services are open.

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.
