New arrivals


With arguably the best view of any library in the country, Ilfracombe Library is just a short walk from both the High Street and Seafront. Friendly, helpful staff can assist you whether it is with choosing a book, uploading a CV or finding a phone number.

There are 10 computers offering up to 2 hours internet access a day, study space, free WiFi, and a wide range of regular activities from Bounce and Rhyme for babies, to film and craft clubs for adults. In addition, there are lots of children's events during school holidays and on Saturdays. Follow us on Facebook to get even more regular Ilfracombe Library news.
