Libraries and Archives


If you live, work or study in Fife, or even if you are just visiting, you can join any of our community libraries and choose from a wide range of services.

There are 51 community libraries, 3 mobile libraries and a housebound service.


It's FREE to borrow books, FREE to use online resources and FREE to use the EzFife PCs - and that includes internet access!

Renew your books (you will need your library membership number and PIN), or visit our library catalogue to find out what's available, make a book request and manage your borrower account.


Go to The Reading Room to find out about new books and promotions, how to join our Reading Groups,  read our FREE magazines on your pc or tablet, and much more.


If you'd like to find out about the history of your area or family then Libraries, Museums & Archives have unique and important collections to help you.

The Archive Centre in Markinch holds the principal collection of historical records of civic life in Fife.  Their role is to ensure the permanent preservation of the records and to make them available to members of the public.

Why not visit and use the online archives catalogue search to see the sort of records they hold or to look for something specific!
