Christmas tree

Welcome to your 24-hour library.

Everyone can use Derbyshire libraries by visiting one of our 45 branches, 10 mobile libraries or by using our online services.

Countdown to Christmas

It is that wonderful wintry time of year again. What better way to spend your time, in between Christmas shopping and wrapping of course, than to lose yourself in one of our recommended reads.

These titles have all been written by local authors and include novels, poems, memoirs and even a science book. If you really like one of these authors please don't keep it to yourself, share your thoughts on our Facebook or Twitter page.

And remember if you have enjoyed discovering a new author, look out for the Adult Reading Challenge beginning in January. Then in May you will have the chance to meet some of the authors included on our list at our Literature Festival, which this year is focussed on Made in Derbyshire 2015 (opens in a new window)
