Public Libraries in Devon and Torbay (Libraries Unlimited)

Libraries Unlimited has a contract to run Devon County Council’s and Torbay Council's public library service – 54 libraries across the Devon and Torbay and 4 mobile libraries. Your local library has something for everyone: books and information, music, films, computers with access to the Internet and more. Free Wi-Fi is available in all our libraries.

Fab Lab Devon
Fab Lab Devon is based in Exeter and Barnstaple Library. It is a small-scale workshop offering digital fabrication facilities. It’s an open access, not-for-profit, community resource where anybody can invent and make just about anything.

You can access a comprehensive collection of online databases and publications and attend practical workshops, one-to-one advice sessions and inspiring talks.
