18th January 2021.
We will re-open for
as soon as possible.
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 2021.
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.
HEARING AID BATTERIES - From Monday 18th January 2021, Lo's Pharmacy on Pond Road have agreed, once again, to continue this service whilst we are closed.
UNCOLLECTED ORDERS will be kept, ready for when we re-open.
FINES have been suspended until 31st March 2021.
BOOKS ON HOLD FROM THE SHEFFIELD LIBRARY CATALOGUE -Whilst we are temporarily closed, the opportunity to reserve (place on HOLD) books to be sent to Stannington Library has been suspended. See Latest News for more details.

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
