News about our opening hours

We're delighted to share our exciting news around our opening hours for the Kedleston Road Library, and the Devonshire Library. For the first time ever, we're introducing 24/7 opening hours to Kedleston Road Library from Monday 5 November to Sunday 16 December, and we're bringing back the extended opening hours for the Devonshire Library from Monday 5 November to Thursday 13 December. 

The 24/7 opening at Derby is supported by a 'library night bus' that will run throughout the period, including between 6pm and 7am at the weekends. A bus timetable will be available. Students will be able to access the Atrium and vending machines. 

We're pleased to have been in working partnership with the Union of Students over opening times, and to have responded to your feedback requesting 24/7 provision.
