Are you a Fife-based entrepreneur or micro-business looking for the perfect office space? Then joining the Scottish Coworking Network Dunfermline is a must. For as little as £35 (plus VAT) a month you could gain unlimited access to a dedicated, professional work space, hot desks throughout Scotland and a host of business resources.
Based at the Dunfermline Carnegie Library & Galleries (DCL&G) the hub has 14 fixed desks, five hot desks and access to meeting rooms within the library. Member only perks also include access to online resources, professional development workshops and events, and an online forum to support professional networking and collaboration.
The hub is the first of its kind in Scotland, with more co-working hubs planned to open in libraries across the country. It is part of the Scottish Library and Information Council’s Scottish Coworking Network, which is being piloted in public libraries across Scotland.
The project highlights the role public libraries play in supporting employability, innovation, entrepreneurship and creativity and sits at the heart of Ambition and Opportunity, A National Strategy for public libraries in Scotland 2015-2020. It aims to break down barriers to enterprise and include a diverse range of people from across communities. As such, the Network assesses applications on a case by case basis.
Membership starts at £42 (£35 plus vat) per month for a hot desk and £60 (£50 plus vat) per month for a fixed desk. Members can use any of the other library-based hubs within the Scottish Coworking Network, subject to availability.
