Weybridge Library is situated in the main shopping street, opposite the post office.
Weybridge Library has reopened. More of Surrey’s libraries are set to reopen some of their services from early August.
From 3 August, a further 12 libraries will start offering a click and collect door service allowing customers to return their items and collect Ready Reads and reserved books. These libraries are Ash, Banstead, Bookham, Caterham Hill, Chertsey, Dittons, Ewell, Hersham, Knaphill, Leatherhead, Reigate, and Walton. However, the public will not be allowed into the buildings for the time being.
In addition, from July 29, the use of computers will restart at the 13 libraries which have already reopened (Camberley, Dorking, Egham, Epsom, Farnham, Godalming, Guildford, Horley, Oxted, Redhill, Staines, Weybridge, and Woking). There will be a reduced number of PCs available to ensure social distancing measures, and time spent on a PC will be limited to 1 hour instead of the usual 2. Sessions will need to be booked either in advance or on the day, and equipment will be cleaned between users.
The county’s libraries closed on 20 March due to the coronavirus lockdown. As the libraries start to reopen, the priority is staff and customer safety, which means the libraries have to operate in a different way with a reduced service, limited capacity in buildings, additional cleaning measures and guidelines in place for social distancing.
The library service is working hard to increase library opening hours but these will be built back up over time due to the additional capacity needed to manage the new required measures.

“I’ve always been a total bookworm and practically lived in my local library when I was a child. I wish I’d been able to join a Chatterbooks reading group then. It would have been such fun to make new friends and discuss all our favourite books. Lots of members write to me and send me their stories and drawings and book reviews – they obviously love being part of a Chatterbooks group.”

The Summer Reading Challenge at Surrey Libraries
Mischief Makers: the Summer Reading Challenge 2018 starts in your local library on Saturday 14 July and will run until Saturday 15 September.
It’s FREE for all children aged 4–11 to take part and you can collect fun rewards as you read books through the holidays. Mischief Makers is inspired by the much-loved children’s comic ‘Beano’ which is celebrating its 80th Anniversary.
Children taking part in the challenge this year will follow clues to explore their colourful collector’s map of Beanotown; meeting Dennis, Gnasher and friends along the way. As children read library books, they will collect special stickers to help them find the mysterious buried treasure!
The Summer Reading Challenge is aimed at children aged 4–11 years and is for everyone regardless of their reading ability.
Taking part is easy and free. Just visit a library to sign up. Borrow books through the summer and earn stickers and other free rewards along the way. You’ll get a certificate after you’ve read six books.
You can read whatever you like, fact, fiction, joke books or poetry, from our excellent range. You can even borrow audio books and listen if you prefer.
Taking part in the Summer Reading Challenge helps children to become more fluent, confident and happy readers.
