Community managed libraries: the next steps

Our plans to change the way we run libraries across the county have now been agreed and we’re taking the next steps. 


The plans, aimed at securing the future of all of our 45 libraries, will see work starting on transferring 20 of them over to communities in the coming months.

These libraries are in the following locations:

Borrowash, Brimington, Clowne, Creswell, Duffield, Etwall, Gamesley, Hadfield, Hayfield, Holmewood, Killamarsh, Melbourne, Old Whittington, Pinxton, Somercotes, Tideswell, Whaley Bridge, Whitwell, Wingerworth, and Woodville.

We now want to hear from groups and organisations who are interested in running their local library, or maybe more than one, so we can start a conversation about making that a reality.

There’s loads of help and support available to groups to make this work, and there’s also support for individuals to help them set up a group to take their plans forward.

If you’re interested, find out what to do next.
