Local Archives

The Derby Public Library is proud to offer Past Perfect, a searchable archive database that contains images and information from our entire local history collection. Purchased with a grant from the Community Foundation, Past Perfect is a wonderful tool that can be used to find specific objects or images owned by the Library. The database is constantly updated with new information and can be accessed by visiting the Derby Public Library.
