Derby Local Studies and Family History Library is currently closed to members of the public but will continue to take enquiries by phone, text and email. 

We continue to urge library members to make use of our electronic services while they are unable to visit us in person. More information about the services and how to get started can be found on our eLibrary pages.

Due to Covid Health and Safety measures our computer offer is self-service, there is no staff support available and computers cannot currently be booked in advance.
