Changes to Southend library services

Southend libraries will no longer be sharing stock items and other arrangements with Thurrock and Essex County libraries. From 5 February 2018, Thurrock library users will not be able to order items from Southend libraries. All items belonging to Southend libraries will be removed from the Thurrock and Essex County catalogue after 5 March.

If your library record says your home library is in the Southend area, your membership will be transferred to Southend libraries and you should register with us separately if you wish to be a member of Thurrock libraries. If your local library is in Thurrock but you think your library record might say Southend – for example, if you moved home – then you should ask our library staff to check your details. If your membership transfers to Southend libraries, we will no longer keep your personal details or records of items you have borrowed.
