Derby Local Studies and Family History Library Exhibition @ Derby Central Library
To celebrate the successful partnership between Derby City Libraries and Youth With A Vision, a community group supporting young people’s development and wellbeing, Derby Central Library is hosting an exhibition.
In 2014, with support from Derby Local Studies and Family History Library, Youth With A Vision made a successful application for Heritage Lottery funding to raise the young people’s awareness of African Caribbean heritage. The library has supported the groups, helping with research and audio equipment.
Key outputs of this 18-month project are the art exhibition and a DVD, both produced by the participants.
We charge for some of these services.
The Library has these accessibility aids:
A car parking space outside the library is available for disabled visitors. Please contact us in advance if you want to reserve it.
