Local elections 2023 Local elections will be held in Torbay on Thursday 4 May 2023 for all wards. Elections will also be held for Brixham Town Council.

Coming soon the Torbay Libraries website will be moving to torbaylibraries.org.uk

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.
