West Byfleet library will close in its current location on Friday 20th August and is proposed to reopen in a temporary location on Monday 20th September ((due to unforeseen circumstances the library will move to the temporary location on Monday 11th October). The library is proposed to remain at this temporary site for up to 5 years whilst the redevelopment of the current site takes place.
All items on loan will be extended during this closure period, with no late fees incurred. Customers will be able to use any Surrey library to borrow and return items and the nearest alternative libraries are Byfleet, New Haw and Woking. Please check our website for individual opening hours as these may vary: Library Opening Hours
The address the library will be relocating to is; The Old Sorting Office, Rosemount Avenue, KT14 6LB. The temporary site is only a short distance from the current site and will offer all our current library services, as well as some parking for library users which we know will be much needed by customers as the development on the current car park takes place.
Conversations around the final position of the library within the new development are ongoing, but we are confident the library will be a core part of the final development. As part of our co-design process, we will be having conversations with residents during the coming weeks and months to hear your thoughts on what you’d like to see in the temporary library and as part of our future library provision.
West Byfleet library will continue to contribute to its community through learning and skills development, as well as providing resources and services to support well-being and a place for communities to come together. There’s lots to experience at Surrey Libraries this summer for all the family with a range of events and our Summer Reading Challenge: Events and activities in libraries – Surrey County Council

We look forward to welcoming you at the new location and continuing to be part of the community at West Byfleet.
