Exciting news for the residents of Harlow! Work will soon begin on a complete refurbishment of Harlow Library. This exciting project means Harlow Library will need to close its doors to the public so this major refurbishment can take place. The library will be closed from Monday 23 August until Spring 2022.

During this time, the opening hours of local branch libraries in Harlow and the surrounding area will be extended, to help customers continue to access our services. The libraries with increased hours are Great Parndon, Tye Green, Mark Hall, Old Harlow, and North Weald. The new opening hours for these libraries will be published on our website and available on the My Library App soon. 

More information, including questions and answers from the public meetings, can be found at Essex County Council’s consultation page.
