The Library and Leisure Card is changing

From 1st April 2017 the scheme will be known as the Torbay Leisure Card. It will continue to be operated by Torbay Council and our partner sports and leisure venues in Torbay.

However, from March 31st, Torbay Libraries will no longer issue new cards or renew old cards.

You will be able to use your current green card at all the usual venues (including libraries) until the new Torbay Leisure Card is introduced.

The Torbay Leisure Card will not include library membership, but you can join the library free any time.

News of where and how you can join the Torbay Leisure Card scheme will be available soon in all libraries and on council and libraries social media.
