To keep our staff, volunteers and customers safe and healthy we’ve taken the decision to close our physical sites in Torbay from the end of Friday 20th March, and suspend our public events.
The Torbay Books on Wheels Service is suspended with immediate effect and during this service closure we are encouraging our volunteers to phone our readers regularly to have a social chat and to check in. Read more >
Books on wheels
If you, or someone you know, is unable to get to the library to choose their own reading, our Books on Wheels service may be able to help.
Books on Wheels operates out of Torquay, Paignton and Brixham libraries and is supported entirely by volunteers from the library, Brixham does Care and Torquay and Preston Rotary clubs. Volunteers choose books based on customers’ preferences, which are then delivered on a monthly basis by volunteer drivers from Rotary club.
If you are interested in signing yourself or someone else up for this service, please contact a member of staff at your local library:
