WELCOME BACK TO BROWSING IN OUR LIBRARY

We’d like to thank our many customers for their patience while our services have been limited.

Customers wishing to come in and choose their books from the shelves and displays can now do so, during our reduced opening hours.

The Surrey County Council Ready Reads service will continue.

Online reservations are available (click HERE for more information); your reserved books can be collected from the service desk.

The drop-off crate for returned books will remain near to the library entrance.

The numbers of people in the library will be restricted, so please be prepared to queue outside if necessary – and please limit your visit to around 15 minutes if others are waiting to come in.

Please remember to:

• Observe social distancing while in the library, and to wear a face-covering;
• Use the hand sanitisers, at the entrance when you come in, and by the kiosk when you are borrowing books;
• Bring your library card, or your phone if you use the library app.

As part of our efforts to keep customers safe in the library, we ask you to:

• Try and keep handling books to a minimum;
• Use our drop off crate for returned books whenever possible – this is available during opening hours.
   (Please note: when we’re closed alternative facilities can be found at Ewell (Bourne Hall) or Epsom libraries);

• Note that toilet facilities, newspapers, public computers and activity sessions (eg Rhymetime) are not yet available in our library.

 

We hope to see you soon!
