Collier Row Library is situated in the north of the borough of Havering, bordering the Borough of Barking and Dagenham. Collier Row gets its name from "Collier" meaning charcoal burner, going back to the days when the village was on the edge of Hainault forest. Today the area has a thriving community based on a large housing estate built during the 1930s as part of the inter-war London housing expansion, with shopping facilities.

The main retail area has a selection of small and large supermarkets, independent clothes shops, hairdressers, bakers, butchers, a range of takeaway shops & restaurants, newsagents, banks and estate agents, public houses, a post office, two churches and the library.

The A12 (Eastern Avenue), which runs through Collier Row at its southern end, leads to London and the east coast of Essex, and crosses the M25 on its eastern section.

The area is not connected to the London Underground or National Rail networks; however Hainault tube station, Newbury Park tube station (central line) and Romford railway station are nearby.
Local bus routes connect Collier Row to Romford, Harold Hill, Stapleford Abbotts & Hainault.

Local open spaces include - Havering Country Park and Bedfords Park with its acres of countryside with and inspiring visitor centre and a herd of red deer. Hainault Forest and South Weald Park are also just a few minutes drive away.
