Guildford Public Library is the only option to borrow books and to study in the city (apart from the University of Surrey which has numerous study rooms and libraries that are restricted and you have to pay a fee if you're not a student). The library is on North Street, parallel to High Street, so it's very central. It has 3 floors for public use: The 1st floor is for receiving, lending and has an area of children's books/games. The 2nd floor contains action books, novels, varied literature and books/practical manuals of geography, wildlife and sports. It also has a loan section of music CDs and computer games. There are 15 computers with Internet access, free to users, but only members. On the top floor there are rooms that can be rented for lectures, group work etc., and a section with cookbooks and art (photography, music, painting, etc.). To avail the loan of books, music and computers, you need to be a member of the library. This is completely free but a procedure is necessary for proof of address (any identification that shows your address and that you live there).
