Bideford Library is housed in a beautiful Grade II listed building established in 1905 as a gift from the famous library benefactor Andrew Carnegie. The Library is open five days a week and offers the full range of library services for adults and children.

The main library is busy with over 200 visitors each day and if you need a quieter place to study, the non-fiction room has tables and public access computers. The children have their very own library and as well as a fantastic range of books, the friendly library staff host regular story time, Lego Club, a Raspberry Pi and other activities.
