Our library locations and opening times


Choose your local library to see opening hours, things you can do and events.


You can see our:

  • community libraries, which we set up and run in partnership with local people and organisations

  • mobile libraries, which bring our services to local communities

  • Essex Record Office, which is the storehouse of Essex history for discovering documents, images, and recordings that together tell the story of 1000 years of our county's past.


We do not manage the library service in Southend-on-Sea and Thurrock.
