 +(was the London Libraries Consortium -LLC)
 +"The council is updating its library management system (the IT platform used to run the service). The preferred option is to join the Libraries Consortium. If this decision goes ahead it is anticipated that Essex will join the consortium around summer 2021. It will provide library users a richer, more flexible service. They will have access to more than seven million books and other reading materials. Users will be able to browse, read, book events, follow favourite authors and get alerts about new books all in one place, on computers, tablets or mobile phones. The Council will have greater buying power and be able to run the service more efficiently."​
