3 ways Surrey libraries can help

If you run a small business in Surrey, Surrey libraries can help

Are you running a small business in Surrey? Are you struggling to find affordable office spaces complete with all the essential IT equipment like computers, printers and meeting rooms? You might be surprised to find that Surrey libraries can help.

Working spaces

If you need to work in a quiet and peaceful environment then why not head to your nearest library? All Surrey libraries come with computers, free wifi and printers as standard. Some libraries also have meeting rooms and quiet study spaces as well.

Subscriptions and services

Surrey libraries have subscribed to a range of services such as genealogy, newspaper archives and company profiles, which can help you keep up to date for your next project.

Subscriptions include:

  • The Gazette
  • Access to Research
  • Newspaper archives
  • Oxford Dictionary of Biography
  • Genealogy resources, including Ancestry and Find My Past

You can also have access to a wide range of e-magazines such as RBdigital Magazines, PressReader and New Scientist, as well as other specialist magazines like the Economist. There are also a wide range of books available online and in all libraries, whether you're looking for tips about time management or computer programming.

Learn new skills

If you need some support getting started with computers, you can have a look at the courses available on Learn My Way or why not sign up to a digital buddy session? You can also check out our Summer of learning article for taster sessions on how you can use social media for your business or how to put together a business proposal.
