Please read this urgent statement about Surrey's library service including information about loans and renewals.
Shut but still open
We have published a list of online services, activities and fun things for both children and adults to do whilst at home.
All of our stock is listed in the Surrey Libraries' catalogue. You will need to be a member to borrow any items.
We offer a range of books and audio visual material covering different aspects of the performing arts:
- Books - Our bookstock covers all aspects of dance, theatre, stage craft, cinema, music and more. Our Shakespeare collection includes study notes, plays on CD and DVD.
- Audio-visual - Our extensive collection of CDs and DVDs covers dance, theatre, cinema, sound effects, tutorials and music.
- Scores - Our scores collection suits the needs of instrumentalists and singers of all standards and includes full, miniature and study scores.
If you are already a personal member of Surrey Libraries, you can borrow items from our general stock directly from us or through any Surrey library. If you are not already a member, you can join online or at your nearest Surrey library.
