Welcome to your 24-hour library.

Everyone can use Derbyshire libraries by visiting one of our network of branch and mobile libraries or by using our online services.

Wellbeing in libraries

We have health and wellbeing zones in 28 Derbyshire libraries.

Why not come along to one of our events being held around the county throughout the year. Full details of venues and dates are on our events page.

Wellbeing events are a mixture of information stalls where you can find out about services local to you, as well as activities to try out for yourself, for example hand and head massages, Tai Chi, jewellery making, chair-based exercise and textile art.

Events are very informal - drop in for a cuppa and find out more.

Derbyshire libraries are part of the Reading Well scheme (opens in a new window), a national initiative from the Reading Agency. Evidence shows that reading self-help and information books and reading for pleasure can be very effective in improving wellbeing.

Look out for future activities at your local health and wellbeing zone or for more information please contact Kirstie Matkin, tel: 01629 539140 or email:
