Kirkcaldy Central Library

Built as an extension to Kirkcaldy Museum and Art Gallery in 1928, Kirkcaldy Central Library is located on Abbotshall Road within the town's War Memorial Gardens. It extended the original facade in the same two-storey Beaux-Arts Classical style, the work of the same Perth-based architects Heiton and McKay. A second entrance was provided, a mirror of the Museum entrance, with the words "Public Library" above. This now provides the entrance to both buildings. Inside is a white and grey marble-lined hall, with woodwork in teak and walnut. The library has an extensive local and family history sections together with computer access points. Both the Library and the Museum and Art Gallery benefitted from a 2.5-million refurbishment 2012-13 and the entire building is B-listed.
