Newton Abbot Library

New arrivals

Newton Abbot Library sits within The Passmore Edwards Centre, a focal point for the local community. As well as the wide range of books, music, films, magazines and other resources, visitors to the area enjoy the Centre’s Café and courtyard, while community organisations and commercial companies can hire the Centre’s meeting rooms for events and meetings.

The Centre houses the UK’s second largest collection of railway studies books and reference materials after York's National Railway Museum and is an access point for adult learning.
