Use your library on lockdown
Published: 30 April 2020
Open a world of discovery online
Their doors might be closed, but Surrey's libraries are still very much open to support you while you're stuck at home during the coronavirus lockdown.
More and more people have discovered what libraries have to offer online, in fact the number of people joining has doubled since our libraries closed their doors on 20 March. So if you're not already a member you can join online and discover like many others the enjoyment of accessing e-books, audiobooks, comics and magazines.
Thousands of families across the county have also been enjoying their usual Rhymetimes digitally. These sing along sessions for young children are now on Facebook, and so far they've had over 7,000 views for the first few sessions. But it isn't just stuff for the younger generations as older residents will soon be able to enjoy online reading clubs.
You can find lots of activities and resources for both children and young people, as well as adults on the Surrey libraries web pages.
