Dunfermline Carnegie Library is currently closed. It will re-open in May 2017 as an integral part of Dunfermline Carnegie Libary & Galleries! This brand new building will be integrated with the historic listed Dunfermline Carnegie Library in the heart of the Heritage Quarter. It will house a museum over two floors, three temporary exhibition galleries, a café, a new children’s library and a local history, study and archives space. Find out more about this exciting project here.


In the meantime, four alternative locations (all with disabled access) have been opened and our staff will be delighted to help with book lending, requests, computer access, etc.
