What's ON

We are delighted that as of Tuesday 27 April, we are now able to welcome you back inside Cupar Library.

We will however be closed from May 31st – 6th June for essential electrical work.

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 Local Studies Service is also reopening on Wednesday 28th April. You can now book a one or two-hour appointment online. To book a Local Studies visit HERE. While restrictions are in place, we will be providing a tailored, one-to-one visitor service at Cupar Library.
