Library visits for groups and schools

Coronavirus (COVID-19) – libraries

All libraries are closed until further notice. You can access newspapers and magazines and e-books and e-audio online.

Return dates for loaned items have been extended until the end of July so you don't need to renew. All fines for overdue items will be waived. You cannot reserve or return books at present – please keep hold of your borrowed items and do not put them in library book drops or letterboxes.

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

: grays.library@thurrock.gov.uk

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.
