Pittenweem Community Library
& Information Centre

Welcome back!

On July 9th we are resuming Friday opening (from 10-1) so we’ll be opening four days a week again, as we did before Covid. 

Our new opening hours are

• Monday 2 – 5

• Wednesday 2 – 5

• Friday 10 – 1

• Saturday 10 – 1

We have the usual measures in place to keep everyone safe – hand gel at the door, a screen round the desk, extra cleaning procedures, and limited numbers in the library at any one time. 

The library has lots of new stock since you last visited so there are plenty of interesting books to borrow. 

Order and Collect: there won’t be a special session for Order and Collect once we reopen but you can still use the service if you prefer not to come into the library. Just order your books from the catalogue in the usual way and email us your choices. You can choose what day you want to pick them up (no need for a specific appointment time) and a volunteer will give you your books at the door. 

We look forward to seeing you! 

When using Order and Collect 

  • Please wear a face covering when you collect your books.

  • Our Library volunteers will also wear a face covering and maintain social distancing.

  • Returns will go into a quarantine box.

 Food Recycling Bags

We now stock a supply of food recycling bags. These are FREE to collect (up to 3 rolls of bags) and are available for collection during opening hours.

Hearing Aid Batteries

We are again stocking hearing aid batteries in the library. Pittenweem Hub will continue to stock them as well so you will now have two places in Pittenweem where you can collect your new batteries.
