Join your library

Coronavirus: due to the coronavirus outbreak, all Surrey Libraries are closed

Please read this urgent statement about Surrey's library service including information about loans and renewals.

You can access our online library services: Free eBooks, eAudio, eMagazines, eComic and newspapers as well as other resources that can be accessed at home

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.

Libraries from home for children and young people

Libraries from home for adults

It's free to join, allowing you to access all our digital resources and it's simple for you to join from home. During the current closure period we have made it even easier for children and young people to join the library by removing the need for an adult guarantor.

How to join

If you have an email address and live or work in Surrey, you can join online in minutes.

If you need to set up an email address you can use a popular free email provider such as Gmail, Outlook or Yahoo to easily set up an email account. If you would like further help setting up an email account that a simple 'how to' course can be found on Learn my Way.

All you need to do is:

  • Choose your local library. This will give you immediate access to our eBooks and eAudiobooks.
  • Fill in your details.
  • Choose a PIN: This is your password for logging in to our various library services.

Follow the instructions online to find your temporary membership number. This can be used to access our eBooks and eAudio through RBdigital. Once our libraries are able to open again, we will send out your library card in the post to you.
