Welcome to our Rayleigh Library page which has been set up to help people living in the community contribute their memories of WW2 to the People's War website.
At Rayleigh Library we have 10 computers. All are equipped with software to magnify the screen and one, specifically, to read the screen. Internet access is free to all members of Essex Libraries and available at Rayleigh Library every day of the week. We are now a Learn Direct Access Centre, offering computer courses and support to learners at all levels.
If you have a story to tell, please contact Rayleigh Library on 01268 775830.
