Health and activity trackers now reservable for free in all Surrey Libraries 

Surrey Libraries have been working with Active Surrey to develop services and programmes to positively impact the health and wellbeing of residents, focusing on physical activity.  

During the pilot last year in 6 libraries, more than half of the people (58%) made positive changes to their physical activity or exercise whilst wearing the tracker, and even more people were planning to make positive changes in the future as a result of wearing the tracker. 6 out of 10 people said they would recommend the tracker or a similar device to friends and family. 

All adult (18 years and over) Surrey Library members can now reserve and borrow for free, a health and activity tracker (smartwatch) from any one of Surrey’s 52 libraries to track their activity levels, improve their health and wellbeing, and get more active. 

The loan period is 6 weeks, and borrowers can renew the tracker once (in person or online) for another 6 weeks. (unless the tracker is reserved by another borrower).  

To reserve a health and activity tracker, please visit the online catalogue. Further information on health and activity trackers is available online. 

For professionals working on a health and wellbeing programme that would like to refer residents to this service, please contact Jules Salmon:
