Derbyshire Mobile Library Service used to
come to Little-Sparkles

Unfortunately - due to local government cut-backs the mobile library service no longer visits. This does mean that I regularly visit the local library with the children and the local staff are most helpful.

Derbyshire County Council used to have 13 mobile libraries, serving communities where no library building exist. Most locations were visited once a fortnight, though some have a weekly service.

At Little-Sparkles we had a fortnightly visit which started in 2006 and ended around 2013.

They used to normally arrive here at 09.45 and leave at 10.15.

All mobile libraries have a lift for wheelchair users and people with mobility difficulties.

Enter the name of your village and see where the mobile library service stops. Click on the desired location and you will be given the date of the next scheduled visit, frequency of visits and more importantly the times.

Form your own Book Group.
Children's Story time sessions.
If you cannot find the book you want they can get it for you.

Ask them about their reservation service.
