***PHASED REOPENING OF LIBRARIES***
We are planning a phased reopening of our libraries from w/c 6th July. Find out more by following this link - Phased reopening of Devon Libraries.
During the period of lockdown - No fines were applied, and any items on loan were extended to 31st August. As libraries reopen, we will revert to our normal terms and conditions for fines and fees.
We offer free access to thousands of books, eBooks, audiobooks, online reference, music and magazines as well as our Business and Intellectual Property (IP) Centres and FabLab Devon. 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.
Kate Bailey - Mobile Library Assistant, Tiverton Mobile Library
Kate says: Although I am an avid reader, I did not set out to work in a library. My CV includes a variety of jobs including, lecturer in Photography, veterinary nurse, fire-fighter, farm worker, and student nurse, to name but a few. I started with Devon Libraries in 2011 as a relief Mobile Library Assistant, just covering holidays and illness. The job is brilliant; I drive all over beautiful North, Mid and East Devon, in all sorts of weather and meet all sorts of lovely people. It is a real pleasure to be considered part of our customers’ day to day life, discussing books, life and everything in between. The mobile library is such an important and vital part of this huge rural county we live in. I’m glad I never knew what I wanted to be when I grew up, as I have ended up by happy accident in the best job in the world.
We have great rooms available to hire for events across the county.
