In early January the Prime Minister announced the current lockdown. We have reviewed local information and will resume lifeline library services to support the health and wellbeing of our communities. Our Choose and Collect and Books on Wheels Service resumes from Monday 18th January. Learn more on our Covid-19 updates page.
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 service will be offered where the volunteer is comfortable providing this service. Our volunteers will order items from the library, collect and then transport to the customer for contactless doorstep delivery.
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:
