New Library Website

Launching Late March

A new look for Surrey Libraries is coming soon. New search, new events, and a mobile-friendly design for your phone or tablet.

Why a new website?

We want to make information easier to find. Most of our website visitors use their phones and tablets, and need a mobile-friendly website. Locations and hours, local events, and great books and media will be easier to find.

How did you decide on changes?

We’ve been listening to customer feedback over the past two years to find out what you want from the library’s website. Our new website also meets higher accessibility standards (WCAG A 2.0). Screen readers and other assistive technology can better use our new website.

When is it coming?

Soon!  Expect to see the new Surrey Libraries website at the end of March. We’ll use the same website address, www.surreylibraries.ca but with a new look.
