National Libraries Day is the day for everyone who loves libraries to celebrate them! 2012 was a busy, exciting year for Devon Libraries with the opening of the £2.8M Passmore Edwards Centre in Newton Abbot, the launch of our free ebooks service and over 8000 young readers taking up the Summer Reading Challenge. 2013 promises to be another excellent year with a new library opening in Totnes, the refurbishment of Sidmouth library, Work Clubs and Free Fridays to help jobseekers and loads of book events including World Book Day.
