Find your local library

Anyone who lives, works or studies in Derbyshire, or is visiting the county, is welcome to use our branch libraries and mobile libraries.


In response to the Coronavirus outbreak, protecting staff and all Derbyshire residents is our top priority, so until further notice, all of our libraries and mobile libraries are closed to the public.

We have a variety of free digital resources available to all customers including eBooks, eMagazines, eAudiobooks and eNewspapers.

Any books currently on loan will be automatically renewed throughout the closure period and no fines will be applied.

For ideas on activities and reading please visit Derbyshire libraries on Facebook and Derbyshire libraries on Twitter

If you have any enquiries please email: ask.library@derbyshire.gov.uk or tel: 01629 533444.

We have books, CDs, audio books and DVDs for loan. We also offer access to community information, newspapers and a wealth of local studies material. There's free internet access in every library.

Choose a library in this section to find out more about its opening times and range of services.

From 1 November 2019 you will no longer be able to renew your library books via by phone. Instead you will need to renew online or visit your local library.

All libraries are closed on bank holidays.
