Horley Library is more than just a library. It is a social centre; a place where you can access a computer to get online, a place to ask about local services and a place where you can get training or join a reading group.

Horley Library will be moving in 2018 to the centre of Horley, opposite the Jack Fairman. We don't know the plans for the move yet but will post them as soon as we know.

A library can also be a place where people who are alone can come and be part of our community. In a recent article in the Guardian the newspaper reported on the sad loss of many libraries and the effect on people who are lonely. Please use our local library, take part in their activities and tell them how valuable they are.

Recent courses at Horley Librbary are: Rhymetime & Storytime, Reading Groupd and Digital Buddy Sessions. Keep an eye on activities at Horley Library: Visit the Horley Library website.

Are you enthusiastic about your work? Could you help our young people with their career choices?

Every year Oakwood School hold a ‘Kick-Start Your Career’ Day for Year 9 students to launch the start of their option choices.
The aim of the day is to support informed decision-making when choosing their GCSE subjects. One of the sessions for the students, aimed at broadening their knowledge of career opportunities, is a ‘speed-dating’ activity with interactive questions and answers between small groups of students and the guests who speak about their careers and answer the student’s questions.

Your help would be much appreciated as the students benefit from speaking to enthusiastic adults from a wide range of careers who are passionate about their work.

This year the event will be held on Tuesday 30th January 2018.

If you can take part or have any questions please contact Pat Johns, Careers Advisor on admin@oakwood.surrey.sch.uk or call 01293 785363.
