The Derby Public Library is moving to phase three of its public safety response plan. Services at the drive-thru will be unavailable as of 8:30 p.m. Thursday, March 26. 

Phase three details are as follows:

  • All physical services at the library are temporarily suspended, including drive-thru service.

  • Library staff will be available 9 a.m.-4 p.m. Monday-Friday and 9 a.m.-noon Saturday to answer phone calls and email messages to assist patrons with their accounts and for technical assistance.

  • All due dates on items currently checked out will be delayed until the library is open, so there is no need to return items while the library is closed.

  • All library digital services remain available while the library is closed. 

  • Online live streaming of yoga, kids’ yoga and story times will continue (be sure to catch it on our Facebook page).

  • Library staff will update the public regularly through the library website at and Facebook, Instagram and Twitter.
