Redhill library

Expansion of library service from Monday 22 April

Following on from the temporary closure of Redhill Library due to the presence of reinforced autoclaved aerated concrete (RAAC) in the building, we are now able to confirm that we will be extending our service offer at Consort House in Redhill and will be returning to our full opening hours from Monday 22 April.

The library will continue to be located at Consort House, Queensway, Redhill, RH1 1YB, a short 2 minute walk from the existing library.

Please see our opening hours table in the section Opening times and accessibility on  the Redhill Webpage for details of the full opening hours from Monday 22 April.

We are pleased to let you know that the whole of the book stock from Redhill Library will be available to customers in Consort House during the temporary library period. The temporary library will occupy a smaller footprint, with the Ground floor available to the public for browsing and the Lower Ground floor stock available by request.

The temporary library will offer:

  • The full range of books including New Titles, Bestsellers and promotions
  • Public PC's, free Wi-Fi, photocopying and printing (from May onwards)
  • Bus Passes and Blue Badge Applications
  • Individual study spaces
  • Comfortable seating and activities
  • Dedicated children's library
  • Events including regular Saturday and Wednesday Rhymetimes which will begin from Saturday 27 April at 10.30am, with an expansion to the events programme to be confirmed in the coming weeks.

In the meantime, Redhill library will remain closed until further notice to allow appropriate repairs for the building to be identified, but please be assured that we are working hard to resolve the situation and will provide further updates in due course. We are sorry for the ongoing disruption to your library service in Redhill.
