Christmas opening hours

All Torbay libraries will close on Saturday 22 December and re-open on Saturday 29 December. They will close again on New Year’s Day before opening again on Wednesday 2 January 2019.

We want children to have fun in the library as they discover the world of books and all libraries in Torbay have areas specifically for children.

We are always happy to offer help on choosing books for your child and welcome any questions you may have and remember:

  • Free reservations - if you're under 16 you can reserve items that are on loan or at another library, absolutely free.
  • No charges - likewise, for under 16s there are no late fees.

We offer a number of free services and activities for children of all ages during and out of term time.
