Q. Is there disabled access to the library?
Colchester: Yes, both main entrances to the library have automatic doors. The main lift is accessible and serves all floors of the library. It can be accessed via a power-assisted door just inside the corridor that leads from the foyer to the Library Reading Room. If you need to access the library after midnight during term or any of the study rooms out of hours during the summer vacation all card readers on our doors are at accessible heights.
If you require any assistance or have any concerns or suggestions please contact the Helpdesk.
Southend: There are lifts to each floor. Entrance to the 2nd floor is via card readers which are at accessible heights.
Loughton: There is one lift that can be used to go from the ground floor to the 1st floor where the library is located.
