Following careful consideration and Government guidance on Coronavirus, all Essex libraries and mobile libraries will be closed until further notice. We apologise for any inconvenience and will let you know as soon as normal service resumes. Find out more.

Essex Libraries have been closed in response to the Covid-19 outbreak. All loans have been extended, overdue charges will be automatically waived and reservations suspended.

They are working to enhance their digital service for people to continue using the library service. eLibrary is online 24/7 with thousands of eBooks, eAudiobooks, eComics, eMagazines and eNewspapers available through Borrowbox, RBdigital and PressReader. Access it through their website

New customers joining online will soon be able to access these services quickly without needing to collect a library card from a library.
