Pear Tree Library

Pear Tree Library is temporarily closed. It'll be relocating & reopening in Spring 2019

Pear Tree Library is to relocate to St Augustine’s Community centre to create a ‘community hub’ just half a mile away from the existing library.

Youth services currently delivered the Madeley Centre will also relocate; creating a hub with the function to serve even more people.

The new location has a significantly larger floor area and a lift to the first floor. The library opening times will remain the same with Derby City Council continuing to operate the library.
