Pittenweem Community Library
& Information Centre

Covid-19 update: The Library is now open on Wednesdays 2.00 to 4.00 pm

We ask that you wear a face covering and sanitise your hands when you come into the library.

  • Returns will go into a quarantine box, and you will be able to browse and check out books in the usual way.
  • Because of the limited space, numbers will be limited to two individuals or a single family at any one time.
  • We’re sorry that you won’t be able to use the computer just yet and will let you know as soon as it’s possible to do that.

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.

Collect and return books on Monday afternoons from Monday 15 June.
