As a heads up, if possible use the self-service check out so you won't have to encounter the generally rude, passive-aggressive, clique staff who seem to believe it's important to reinforce small minded rules when you simply need change or to check on an item on hold, so much for bothering them! Derby is a nice little back-woods bedroom community that now has, basically, a modern strip mall. Big deal, this ain't exactly Beverly Hills, in fact the cost of living is peanuts compared to many/most places in the country. And yet the pretentious little staff here act with unjustified rude self-importance. So gross. As for the selection of material, it's not bad and they do have a liberal grace period on library returns. But If you're from out of town (or not overweight and also holding a child in your arms), AVOID the staff, they are potentially dangerous and may have lasting side+ effects and again it may be very wise to use self check-out whenever possible.

Amazing children's play area, which comes with a sensory wall for 0-2. This library hosts an abundance of free activities such as yoga, ukelele lessons, and family reading programs. You can rent study rooms, movies, video games, CDs, and of course, books. They have a bunch of flyers and pamphlets in which you can find out more about community resources and events. I come pretty often to use the printer and grab a free coffee. It's just a lovely environment overall

Best Library I’ve ever been in. Ample space and amazing selection of books, movies and games. Living near this library would save anyone from boredom!

Everyone is so friendly and everything is easy to find. I'd recommend this library to anybody. There are also self-checkouts and free bookmarks. The atmosphere is very nice, since it is so quiet.
