Mobile Library Routes

From Monday 21 September 2020, Derbyshire County Council mobile library vehicles started operating again for mornings only and following new routes.

The service is operating a `book and borrow' system, which means customers need to phone to book an appointment on one of the numbers below, and will be able to pick up a maximum of 10 books.

  • Buxton mobile library: 01629 533464
  • Long Eaton mobile library: 01629 531398

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

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

As the service is 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.

Customers affected by the changes can contact ask.library@derbyshire.gov.uk or call 01629 533444 to discuss receiving a home library service during this period.
