What's in your library

Library volunteering

Volunteering has many benefits. You can find current library volunteer roles – such as home-link delivery or helping with computer sessions – on our council volunteering opportunities page.

Getting back into reading

Thurrock libraries support reading by having a wide range of books. If you are an adult and looking for books to get you back into reading we can help you:

Quick Reads

Written by best-selling authors, these short books are easy to read. Adult education colleges use them to improve their students' confidence in English and support their reading.

All Thurrock libraries have Quick Reads and new collections are bought each year.

Move On

This is a collection of books based at Grays library aimed at beginner adult readers and for those with English as a second language.
