Welcome to Stannington Library

Temporarily closed from Monday 18th January 2021.

We will re-open as soon as possible.

Status Update 13th January 2021

Because of the current Covid-19 situation, the trustees of Stannington Library have, with great regret, decided that the volunteer library must close from Monday 18th January.

You can place orders for books up to 3.45pm on Friday 15th January. Saturday 16th January will be our last day of opening for books previously ordered to be collected, or you can take a Pot Luck bag of free books, or a free jigsaw puzzle, if you prefer.

Although the current rules allow us to stay open, we have taken the decision to close in the light of the Chief Medical Officer’s clear advice to everyone to stay at home and avoid all unnecessary contacts. Our first concern is the safety of the public, and also our volunteers, most of whom are in vulnerable groups.

We will keep the situation under review and hope to re-open for Order & Collect Services soon. Please look out for further announcements on this website, on our Facebook page @StanningtonLibrary or on our Twitter page @booksSTAND.

We will resume accepting donations of books, DVDs, CDs and Video Games when we re-open - so please keep us in mind if you have some items to donate.

We will resume offering our photocopying service when we re-open (10p per page - please bring the correct money as we cannot give change).

You can still collect your hearing aid batteries from us until Saturday 16th January. From Monday 18th January, Lo's Pharmacy on Pond Road have agreed, once again, to continue this service whilst we are closed.

Our full re-opening programme is in progress, but keeps being pushed back.

In the meantime we wish good health to everyone!

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
