Public Computers

at Stannington Library

We have 3 adult and 2 children's computers available for the public to use. Call in or phone to book a session. This is free to members of the library. Non-members can also use the computers for a small charge.

The computers all have Microsoft Office and access to the Internet, as well as other useful software. The children's computers have some extra software installed: Scratch, Kodu and a few other fun programs.

You can print from the computers - A4 Black & White copies cost 10p. Colour, back to back and size A3 is available too - but these cost more.


We are very happy to accept donations of Books, DVDs, CDs, Video Games and Jigsaw Puzzles - so keep us in mind if you have some items to donate. There's a crate for donations in the foyer, please call in any time we are open.

We are currently also accepting donations of small Christmassy bric-a-brac.

STAND was formed in 2013 after Sheffield City Council announced its decision to close sixteen libraries (including Stannington) unless volunteers took them on. STAND was registered as a charity in 2014 and is funded by grants, donations and fund-raising activities. The library is run by a team of dedicated volunteers.
