Wi-Fi print-and-collect service launched at libraries

5 January 2023

A new Wi-Fi printing service has launched that lets residents print documents from their personal device and collect them at their local library.

Anyone with a library card can upload files they wish to print from their phone or computer to a Thurrock Council website. They can then visit any Thurrock library within 24 hours and use a self-service system to print the files, paying a small fee for each printed item.

Access to the service and guidance on its use – including details of printing fees and the file types that can be printed – are available at

Cllr Qaisar Abbas, Cabinet Member for Communities, said: "The new Wi-Fi printing service is a great way for those who don't own or have easy access to a printer to quickly and easily get their documents printed.

"Whilst we continue to promote a digital-first approach across our services, we understand that sometimes there's a need for a paper copy of an important document or paperwork in our lives.

"It's incredibly easy to use our new service, with residents able to upload their documents over Wi-Fi via the Thurrock Council website, and send them to print within minutes – it really is a great way for our residents to connect with their local libraries."

It only takes a few minutes to become a library member. You can join at or at your local library.
