New national government restrictions due to COVID-19 mean temporary changes to services at Derby Libraries. 

From Thu 26 Nov, RiversideMickleoverAlvaston and Normanton Libraries will be opening for the public use of PCs and Wifi only.  This will be a limited service and users will need to book in advance by calling the library. 

Riverside, Mickleover, Alvaston and Normanton Libraries are all running a click and collect service for borrowing and returning books and other items. Members can choose and reserve items, and arrange collection, by accessing the online library catalogue

The Home Library Service will continue to operate, delivering and collecting pre-ordered books from Care Homes and vulnerable people living at home. 

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.

Derby has 14 libraries and a Local Studies and Family History Library.

There is also a Home Library Service for people who can’t get to the library or have difficulty carrying books.
