Sinfin was the first library to be handed over to us and opened as a CML on 14th May, followed by Spondon library on 25th June and Allestree library on the 31st July.
Each of these Community Managed Libraries has a dedicated group of volunteers and an active Steering Group who together are making a huge contribution to the success and sustainability of each library, by giving up their time and helping to engage and involve the local community in the design and delivery of services and activities to ensure they meet local need.
Additionally they are supporting the development of new business opportunities, helping to recruit new volunteers and supporting the marketing and publicity of library services.
Further libraries will follow as the project progresses and we will update our website with details once transfer dates have been confirmed.
We are working in close partnership with Derby City Council, to ensure our customers continue to receive a seamless library service across Derby, which includes access to an extensive range of books, e-books, audio books and computer facilities.
