What's ON

Cowdenbeath Library is open and we’re delighted to welcome you back. You can select books, use public access PCs and other offerings such as photocopying, printing and collecting hearing aids batteries.

As you would expect, there will be safety measures in place to ensure the wellbeing of our staff and visitors and we encourage you to follow the current Covid guidelines.

Overdue fines

Good news – we are waiving overdue fines on books. You can return your books to any OnFife library, it doesn’t have to be the branch you borrowed them from.
