Libraries have had to change the way that some of their services operate to meet the guidelines set out by the government in response to the Coronavirus pandemic.

The Torbay Books on Wheels Service is suspended during this time, our volunteers are being encouraged to phone readers regularly to have a social chat and to check-in.

Library closures

All our Libraries are now closed but library staff are still on hand to help. They will be available on the phone, answering emails and providing updates on their social media pages. It doesn’t matter where you usually borrow your books from, any of the libraries will be happy to help you.

There are a range of downloads that you can access, including eBook, eMagazines and audiobooks onto your tablet, smartphone or computer from home. Your library card gives you access to 1000s of titles through the Overdrive, RBdigital and Borrowbox, which you can access for free. Find out more via Torbay Libraries.
