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.

In the meantime, continue to browse this website to find out all you need to know about Torbay's libraries.

If you are 5 years or over you can join Book Quest, a fun reading game where you journey the seas, through jungles and finally into space with lots of rewards along the way.

There are 3 levels and you have to read 100 books for each level so it’s quite a challenge. It’s not a competition so you can take as many years as you like. You get to chose the books you want to read and they can be fiction, non-fiction or even comics and magazines.

When you join you will get a colourful folder, a log for recording the books you read and a plastic zip wallet to keep all your bits safe. Each time you visit the library, friendly library staff will talk to you about the books you have read and give you rewards as you reach different stages. There are also a few challenges along the way but they are all fun and help you to learn more about books, authors and how the library works.

When you complete each stage, you will win a certificate and metal badge. These can be presented to you at your school assembly so you can share your achievement with friends and teachers.
