Monday 2nd December - Christmas Book Display
Now on until mid-Januray 2014 is our brilliant Christmas book display. We have a superb variety of books on all aspects of Christmas, covering the traditional Christmas story in art and literature. The origins of the Christams Festival itself, and Christmas customs and traditions. We have books looking at Christmas in different times and places, focussing on Dicken's Christmas and Christmas during the world wars of the last century.
 
Tuesday 24th September - New Surrey County Council Community Partnered Libraries Progress Report
The SCC Cabinet agreed on 24th July 2012 to progress with the implementation of Community Partnered Libraries scheme and that there should be a progress report in September 2013.
 
Tuesday 17th September - Online Magazines
Surrey Library Services have added a range of online digital magazines to the Online Reference Shelf. These are available from home to library users on a variety of devices, as well as in the library. Mostly these are exact digital copies of the hard copy magazine and cover a wide selection of titles. There is a new display in the library explaining the system and displaying the titles currently available, and a take-away helpsheet is available, together with a more detailed booklet for reference. The latter can also be downloaded here.
 
 
Saturday 7th September - New Book News
We now have in the last of three new books we requested about the typical houses in the Stoneleigh area. These are part of a group of books covering the history, design, and maintenance of the properties many 
of us live in and so should be of considerable interest to many library users. Please have a look at these and
do borrow them ! They will be kept on the new book displays for the next few weeks unless on loan.

Seventy-nine children and teens registered for the reading challenge today at the launch event. In addition, thirty-seven people either joined the library for the first time or renewed a lapsed membership and the overall footfall for the day was 465 compared with the previous normal Saturday which had 144 people - a very pleasing result.

Saturday 6th. April 2013

The Craft and Cake Sale held on the 6th April was a very well attended event with a footfall of 317, and FSL made £125 after expenses. A number of new users joined the library. All-in-all a very good result, and a big thank-you to everybody who supported us and the stallholders who supported the event. I think everyone had a good time and the cakes were also rather scrumptious ! We also had an amazing 43+ entries for the Children's colouring competition and a big-thank you to them for their amazing entries, which gave our judges a difficult choice. However six winners were finally chosen and are their colourful designs are reproduced on the events page.
