Torbay Libraries is a network of 4 libraries.
We offer free access to thousands of books, eBooks, audiobooks, online reference, music and magazines. Each of our libraries runs numerous events and activities for all the family, and staff are on hand to help you find anything you need.
We believe in the unlimited potential for libraries to make a positive difference to people’s lives and communities, and welcome thousands of visitors to our libraries and online services every day.
The theme of this year’s Summer Reading Challenge is Space Chase and is inspired by the 50th anniversary of the moon landings. Children aged 4-11 year are encouraged to join the Challenge by reading six books over the summer holidays and receive rewards and goodies along the way. There’s lots of events happening throughout the summer too, so come and get involved!
Torbay Libraries offer competitively priced meeting rooms and conference room hire services. Our meeting rooms vary from small rooms to larger conferencing facilities.

Sam Grace - Team Leader, Torquay Library
Sam says: Having landed my dream job as Team Leader at Torquay Library, I can honestly say that it's a magical place. The staff are thoughtful and caring and our customers really do appreciate them. In a community that is pretty fractured by poverty and unemployment, the library is a beacon of calm and creativity for all. The Torquay Library team work tirelessly to provide all customers with the very best service; from offering a warm and welcoming space and book recommendations to a simple chat with a friendly face. The most satisfying part of my job is seeing and meeting new customers, and catching up with existing ones who both bring fresh smiles, challenges and stories every day. Our team has lots of exciting ideas for events and services for 2019… watch this space.
