On Saturday 28 May, Essex Library Service will be celebrating a Love Your Library Day Jubilee Special.

You are royally invited to join us on this date to celebrate the wonderful work that takes place in our libraries all year round. To compliment our celebrations, we will also be commemorating The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee. In 2022, Her Majesty The Queen will become the first British Monarch to mark 70 years of service.

On this date, there will be jubilee-themed activities for both adults and children, including a trail, storytime, arts and crafts, ancestry and much more!

We are also asking residents to bring photos in to their local libraries for us to use in our Love Your Library Jubilee Special display boards which will represent the seven decades from 1952-2022. Please bring in photos from previous Jubilee celebrations, photos from meeting the Queen or the Royal family, photos of Royal memorabilia collected from the past 70 years or newspaper cuttings. Staff will be able to take copies of original photographs. Please note, some images from our display boards will be saved in special Jubilee Memories scrapbooks.

Upon submitting your photograph, you will be asked to complete a photo permission form which library staff will be able to help with. 

Please keep an eye on our events listings for individual library events.
