Library services

Welcome to the Education Centre Library.

We are a multidisciplinary library dedicated to supporting the information needs of both clinical and non-clinical Trust members, health and social care staff working within the South Essex community and students on hospital placements.


The library is located on the ground floor of the Education Centre, in the hospital's Yellow Zone.

Details of the hospital's colour coded zones can be found on the maps and locations page.

Opening hours

Staffed opening hours are from 8.30am until 6.00pm from Monday-Friday. There is also 24-hour access to the Library and Quiet Study Room for library members.

Books can be returned outside staffed hours via the Book Return boxes, which are located in the Library and outside the main entrance to the Education Centre.
