TORQUAY LIBRARY CLOSURE

Work is progressing to repair damage to the library caused by the recent severe weather conditions. Our priority is to ensure the safety of the public and we are working to reopen the library as soon as possible. We will keep you updated as we move along the process.  Customers are encouraged to use our other libraries in Torbay whilst the repairs are carried out. All library customers can also access their accounts to reserve and renew items or browse the catalogue online at torbaylibraries.org.uk
