Coming soon the Torbay Libraries website will be moving to

You'll still be able to find all the usual information, from events and activities at your local library to books, eBooks and eMagazines. The catalogue will still work in the same way, but some of the pages will have an exciting new look.

Book time on a computer

We are currently moving to a new booking system for using a computer in our libraries: during this time we will be unable to accept bookings online. Our new booking system will be available early August: in the meantime, please contact your local library if you wish to make a booking.

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.
