Derbyshire County Council has 13 mobile libraries, serving communities where no library building exist. Most locations are visited once a fortnight, though some have a weekly service.
At Little-Sparkles we have a fortnightly visit which started in 2006.
They normally plan to arrive here at 09.45 and leave at 10.15.
All mobile libraries have a lift for wheelchair users and people with mobility difficulties.
To find out if the mobile library stops near you use the link for Mobile Library routes.
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.
