Public Computers

at Stannington Library

We have 3 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. There's also some software aimed at our younger library members: 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 are 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.

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.
