System Upgrade

We will be upgrading our computer systems from 28 November. During the changeover, there will be some library functions that you won’t be able to use online or through the self-service kiosks. We aim to keep disruption to a minimum and our staff will always be on hand to help.

You can come to the library for basic assistance with your job searches.

Remember, there is free use of computers and internet for library members for one hour per day and free wi-fi at Torquay, Paignton and Brixham libraries if you have your own device.

You can book a 1-to-1 appointment with a computer buddy at Torquay, Paignton or Brixham libraries for guided help with Universal Jobmatch and online job hunting skills.
