Ordering and renewing library items

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.

Renewing items

You can renew your books, films and music by logging-in to your library account.

Library account login

Enter your library card number and PIN.

You can also renew items by phone or in person at any Thurrock library.

If you renew CDs and DVDs there will be an additional hire charge.

You may not be able to renew an item if:

  • the item has been requested by another person
  • you have renewed the item 7 times
