Charges for dance, drama and music at Ewell Library

Charges for general stock

There is no charge to borrow our general stock. The standard library charges apply for reservations and overdue items.

Drama and music group reservations

Your drama or music group can take advantage of our competitive charges to hire from our wide selection of multiple copy sets of plays or music. To reserve your set, use our online play set request form or music set request form.

Our downloadable PDFs help you make your choice:

If your group doesn't already have membership, you can complete our online registration form.

Please note that an annual subscription fee and hire charges are payable.

Charges for music and play sets

Charges from 1 February 2018. A statement containing the rationale behind our charges for play and music sets is downloadable from the foot of this page.

Please note that a reservation means that the selected material is held for your group and is unavailable for loan by other groups. When you give us details of the quantity required and the length of time you wish to borrow the material, we will calculate the total cost (reservation and hire charges). If you wish to continue at this point, then all charges, including the hire fee will be added to your account and become payable.

Please see details of our refund policy.
