Mobile libraries

There are 2 mobile libraries based at Buxton and Long Eaton, serving around 150 communities across the county where there is no library building. These places are visited once every 4 weeks.


Mobile library vehicle

From Monday 21 September 2020, both of our mobile library vehicles will start operating again for mornings only and following new routes.

The service will operate a `book and borrow’ system, which means you will need to phone to book an appointment and will be able to pick up a maximum of 10 books.

Appointment times will last 5 minutes, and for the time being you will not be able to select your own books by stepping onto the vehicle. Instead, you will be asked what type of books you like reading and a selection will be made for you so you can pick them up at your allotted time.

All returned books will be quarantined for 72 hours and you will need to bring your own bag to pick up your books.

As the service will be mornings only it will not be possible to visit all the usual stops, and new routes have been introduced. This will be reviewed over the coming weeks and months.

The mobile libraries have a lift if you use a wheelchair or have mobility problems.
