12 May 2021

We have been really pleased to welcome so many of you back into libraries over the last month and hope you have enjoyed being able to access our buildings and browse for books again. 


Across the lockdown Essex Library Services has been automatically extending due dates so that items that were due on or after Monday 4 January have automatically been extended until 17 May.  


Now that life is beginning to return to normal, from the 17 May, we will be returning to our normal lending and charging policies.  


Notifications for available holds have already restarted and notifications about items that are due will restart this week.   


Please log into your account via the catalogue to double check that your contact details are up to date.  


Details about loan periods and charges can be found on our website 


If you do have any queries regarding your account, please speak to staff on your next visit to your local library.
