Service update

We are pleased to announce that we have started reopening some of our Libraries for browsing.

New Malden Library will reopen on Monday 21 September, joining Surbiton Library and Hook and Chessington Library. The opening days and times have been temporarily reduced but will be reviewed regularly and increased as circumstances allow. 

In order to keep library access as safe as possible adhering to Government guidelines for social distancing we are putting the following measures in place and staff will be on hand to help guide you through the process.
