Derby City Libraries

Derby Local Studies and Family History Library is your place to research local and family history. Run by Derby City Council, the library has one of the UK's largest and oldest collections of printed and manuscript material relating to Derby and Derbyshire, originally formed from two outstanding private libraries.

If you would like to find out more about your house, street, suburb, village or community the library will have a wide range of resources that you may find useful. The local studies collection is reference only, but all are welcome to come and view materials, and in most cases digital or paper copies can be made for personal use.
