What's in your library

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.

Jigsaw loans

Each jigsaw can be borrowed for up to 12 weeks.

Donate a jigsaw

If you have a jigsaw that has no missing pieces and is in good condition – box and pieces – you can donate it to any Thurrock library for the enjoyment of other library users.

We also accept jigsaw boards for 500 or 1000 pieces.
