Surrey Libraries Policy statement on Bank Holiday closures.

Emergency closures

A Library Manager, or the senior member of staff on duty, has discretion to close service points within the library, or the library itself, when staffing levels are deemed to be too low, or when conditions make it difficult, to open the library, with due regard to health and safety considerations.

Please check your local library page for closures.

Closures due to bad weather
