What's ON

We are delighted that as of Monday 26 April, we are now able to welcome you back inside Cowdenbeath Library.  

To begin with we are offering a Limited Browsing service, which means a limited number of people in the library at any one time. You can select books, use public access PCs and other basic offerings such as photocopying, printing and collecting hearing aid batteries. 

As you would expect, there will be safety measures in place and everyone must follow Scottish Government FACTS guidelines. 

The Connect and Collect Service will still be available if you would like the library staff to pick a selection of books for you and you can pick up your bag of books from the door if you prefer. 

Our temporary opening hours are:

Monday Tuesday Wednesday Thursday Friday Saturday 
10:00-12:30 13:30-16:00 10:00-12:30 13:30-16:00  Closed 11:00-12:30 13:30-18:00 Closed 10:00-13:00
