Essex Library Services is delighted to welcome customers back to the library as they start re-opening, initially at sixteen locations, from 6 July. Visiting the library will look different at first, with measures put in place for the safety of their customers and staff. The services available will be limited but you can stay for up to 15 minutes and you can return, renew, borrow and pay via the self-service machines. All other services and facilities are under continuous review and will resume as soon as it is safe to do so.
They ask for your patience and support as libraries begin their phased reopening and encourage you to use #LibrariesFromHome page to access the wide range of digital reading and learning resources available.
