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.

You can come to the library for basic assistance with your job searches.

Remember, there is free use of computers and internet for library members for one hour per day and free wi-fi at Torquay, Paignton and Brixham libraries if you have your own device.

You can book a 1-to-1 appointment with a computer buddy at Torquay, Paignton or Brixham libraries for guided help with Universal Jobmatch and online job hunting skills. Check out events page for more details of computer help sessions.
