Library visits for groups and schools

Coronavirus (COVID-19) – libraries

Go to our coronavirus (COVID-19) safety page for information on visiting re-opened libraries from 5 November onwards. All items borrowed after 15 October 2020 have had their loan dates extended automatically to 8 January 2021. Do not put borrowed items in library book drops or letterboxes.

As well as ordering and renewing library items online, you can use our libraries order and collect service to ask our staff to choose items for you from the shelves of your local branch library.

Group visits

We invite all groups to visit their local library. Visits must be booked in advance.

To book a visit contact:

Grays library
Thameside Complex, Orsett Road, Grays, RM17 5DX

: 01375 413 976

Tell us what you would like your visit to include.

We can show you:

  • what you can find in the library
  • what you can do online
  • a tour of the library
  • library services which meet the specific needs of your group members

We can also cover the reader badge syllabuses for Brownies, Cubs, Guides and Scouts and introduce library support for group members with English as a second language.
