Community Libraries

Woman looking at laptop

Derby’s ten community libraries are under the management of Derby City Council.

Derby City Council is to explore new community models as it looks to future-proof library provision in the city.

In March 2023, the Council launched a process to identify viable proposals for ten Council buildings currently used solely as community libraries.

This process has been paused while the Council considers alternate delivery models.

A chance to volunteer

There’s always room in Derby’s libraries for willing volunteers. If you would like to volunteer in our community libraries, we’d love to hear from you.

You need to be over 16 and able to commit to regular volunteering, but the hours and pattern can be flexible to fit in with your commitments.

To find out more, email us at libraries@derby.gov.uk and let us know which library you’d like to volunteer in.
