At Ivybridge Library, books are at the heart of the service we offer but there is much more to see, try and experience in our modern and vibrant library. The Library is located on the ground floor of the Watermark and offers everything from study tables, computers (free of charge for two hours) and newspapers through to board games, knit and natter or read and reminisce groups. There is also a very popular café on site.

In the light and airy dedicated children’s area there are regular craft activities and weekly children’s groups such as teeny tots and Bounce and Rhyme. Open access of 46 hours a week means that the library can be used even when the friendly and helpful staff are not on duty.
