The Durrell School of Corfu maintains a reading library on its premises in Corfu Town, Greece. The library aims to contribute to the local community, Humanities scholars visiting Corfu, and for research on Lawrence and Gerald Durrell. The library holds an extensive collection of primary and ancillary materials in support of these aims.

The primary language of holdings is English, with a strong emphasis on literary materials. Further holdings in Greek and French augment the collection. A small collection of manuscripts and research papers are also available for scholarly research.
