How does Connect & Collect work?
Connect and Collect FAQs

You tell us what kind of books you like to read – for example, contemporary crime fiction or historical romance – and our library teams will put together a collection of up to 10 books then give you a call when they’re ready.

How do I go about using Connect & Collect?

Fill in the forms using the links above or alternatively you can call the library to tell us what kind of books you’d like in your collection. We will then give you a call to tell you when your books are ready to be collected.

Can I return books?

Yes. Please bring them along in a bag that you don’t need to be returned.

Will I have overdue book charges?

We currently aren’t charging any fines so don’t worry about your books being overdue. Just drop them off when you can so we have more choice for readers.

What can I expect when I go to collect my books?

You will be asked for your name and postcode ​to make sure you get the right bag. Please bring your library membership card if you have one. If you have joined the library ​online and don’t have your card yet, please bring both proof of address and photo ID. We are trying to avoid queues but please be aware that you may have to queue.

When you’re returning books, there will be a box near the door so that you can put the books directly into it.

What branches are operating Connect & Collect?

The branches are Benarty, Burntisland, Cadham, Cardenden, Cowdenbeath, Cupar, Dalgety Bay, Duloch, Dunfermline Carnegie, Kennoway, Kirkcaldy Galleries, Ladybank, Leslie, Leven, Lochgelly – Jennie Lee Library, Methil, Newburgh Newport, Oakley, Rosyth, Tayport, Templehall, St Andrews, St Monans, Valleyfield and Windmill.

Can I use another branch for Connect & Collect?

Yes. We’ve tried to ensure that even if your local branch is not operating, there is another branch within reasonable travelling distance.
