Welcome to Stannington Library


Monday 17th August 2020

Stannington Library now has shelves re-stocked with books returned to us and quarantined for at least 72 hours. We cannot yet open our doors for you to come in and browse, but we can provide you with links that will allow you to scan our catalogue lists, and to order books for collection.

You can select books from our own ‘Yellow Sticker’ collection or from the Sheffield Libraries stock on our shelves. Click here to visit our 'Order & Collect' page and get started

AND DON’T FORGET – if you would like to try our new Pot Luck option, you, you can now take away one of our bags of donated books – free of charge – in the genre of your choice . We are also now accepting donated books, but still not DVDs, CDs, jigsaw puzzles or any other items for sale as we have no way of using them .

Have you seen our new resources page? It will contain links to reading resources, writing and drawing projects, puzzles and games, and ways just to have fun. Click here to visit the page.

Our re-opening programme has now begun. Please keep visiting this site for the latest information about what we are able to offer.

We will continue to monitor all official sources and inform people of any information relevant to the way you are able to use Stannington Library or to the services we are able to offer.

In the meantime, may we wish everyone in Stannington and everyone who visits the library, wherever they are from, good health.

STAND (Stannington & District Library Group) was formed in 2013 after two public meetings that explored the issues raised by Sheffield City Council’s announced withdrawal of formal support for Stannington Library. Since then, the group has been formalised, a committee was formed and teams of volunteers were recruited
