NAS Surrey Branch Postal Library


We now offer a postal library service for NAS Surrey Branch members which enables you to borrow up to 3 books at a time from our library of over 300 titles about autism and related issues. We have books suitable for parents and carers, children and adults with autism and professionals working in the field. Please carefully read ALL the steps and rules below which explain how to borrow books.


Step 1

You can view our books on a spreadsheet here (if the link doesn't work, paste this into your browser: http://bit.ly/2e7WGDA). This takes you to a spreadsheet that allows you to view all the library books and DVDs and decide which books (maximum of 3) you wish to borrow from those shown as AVAILABLE. Please note, it may take a bit of time to load the first time you view as it contains images of all the books. 

Step 2

If possible, make a donation of at least the cost of the postage cost shown (which includes return postage) via our Justgiving page www.justgiving.com/nassurreybranch or by a cheque made payable to 'NAS Surrey Branch' and sent to our postal address: NAS Surrey Branch, c/o Mayfield, 74 Hersham Road, Hersham Surrey KT12 5NU.

Step 3

Email parent volunteer librarian Susan on nassblibrary@gmail.com to request the book/s you want, giving your name and full postal address, including postcode.

Step 4

When you receive the books in the post please remember to KEEP THE JIFFY BAG and the RETURN POSTAGE ENVELOPE safe

Step 5

When you are ready to return the book/s you’ve borrowed, you will just need to put them into the jiffy bag they arrived in, and then into the pre-addressed plastic postal wrapper supplied, which will already have the appropriate amount of postage. You can then just pop it into a postbox.
