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.

Paignton Meeting Rooms

An additional fee of £48 will be charged to set up rooms outside of office hours and at weekends. The hirer may choose to set the room up themselves to avoid this charge.


Where the use of a meeting room will attract VAT, an additional amount at the appropriate VAT rate will be added to the total booking cost.
