Pittenweem Community Library
& Information Centre

 The Library is still open for Order and Collect. 

To comply with current Covid regulations, the library is closed to the public, but the Order and Collect service will continue

Libraries are allowed to offer an Order and Collect service, even under the latest lockdown rules, because the Scottish government regards books as an essential item.

Parents and carers are invited to use Order and Collect to borrow books and DVDs for their children.

Just choose books and DVDs from our online catalogue, email the library to tell us what you want and make an appointment to pick them up on Monday afternoons.

We will also have food waste bags available for collection on Mondays between 2 and 3pm.  No appointment necessary – please just come along and pick up the food bags from the table at the entrance.

Order and Collect Service

Members of Pittenweem Library can email or phone the library to order the books they want to borrow. Choose your books from the online catalogue or ask the library volunteers to choose for you.
