CT Yuletide Carolers return to the Library + FREE Quilt Raffle

As an added bonus, a FREE raffle ticket for a beautiful handmade reversible quilt graciously donated to the Library will be available ONLY during this event.  Winner will be announced at 7:30 p.m.

In what has become a holiday tradition, the evening festivities will include a visit from Victorian garbed Carolers from 6:00-7:30 pm  who will fill the cold winter air with the warm sounds of the season, bringing holiday cheer to young and old alike. They will greet visitors as they enter the main lobby, inviting all to sing-along: Everyone is invited to take part in this special day.

No registration is required! This is a drop-in event and the Library will be following its COVID guidelines regarding capacity limit in the building, along with required face masks and social distancing protocol.

December Book Discussion

Join us in-person for the Derby Public Library's holiday Lunchtime Book Discussion.

In a festive annual tradition, #1 New York Times bestselling author Debbie Macomber delivers a heartwarming seasonal tale Twelve Days of Christmas.

Registration is requested. Drop-ins also welcome if library COVID capacity limits are not exceeded. Face masks and social distancing are required to attend in-person, in-door events.

For further information contact the Reference Desk at 203-736-1482. Multiple copies of the book will be available at the circulation desk.
