Takeout Service

Welcome to Surrey Libraries takeout. We are excited to get our materials moving!

You can pick out what you want or our expert staff can pick items for you. To get started, there is a limit of 10 items, with pickups every 2 weeks.

Takeout service is currently limited to items checked in at the branch you would like to pick up at. You can browse our catalogue, and use the 'available now' to filter your search by the location you want to pick up at.

Use Advanced Search to Find Items At Your Branch

If you don’t have a Surrey Libraries card, staff will contact you to create an account.
I would like to pick up my materials at:
If not you, the name of the person who will be picking up the order.
Do you have children who would like to participate in SRC?

How would you like to select materials?

You can pick the items yourself, or let us know what you like and our staff will make the selections for you. Right now, we are limited to what is available at the branch you want to pick up at.

If you have existing holds, they will be added to your takeout order.

Tell us more about what you would like

ex. I would like a batch of thrillers to read this summer. My favourite authors are James Patterson, Lee Child and Dean Koontz. Something from them would be great but also maybe a new author to try.
ex. My 7 year old would love some books about dinosaurs. They aren't really interested in stories, more facts about dinosaurs.
ex. I want to start beekeeping this summer. Do you have a few titles that would help me get started?
