Have you seen?


It's a great website to explore if you're looking for information and updates about Sheffield Libraries, as well as interesting news about activities they are promoting.


The National Literacy Trust have partnered with Oak National Academy (which is funded by the Department for Education) to present a free 'online' book from its children's author of the week.

There are lots of different authors to choose from. Each has a video of the featured author and a book reader that allows you to read the featured book. Be aware that the book reader may not be available after the featured week, Each author also has some recommended reads and some interesting downloadable activities.


*These groups used to meet regularly in Stannington Library but we have not been able to run them since we closed at the beginning of the Covid-19 pandemic. We opened for limited book browsing on 10th May 2021 and we are hoping to be able to host these groups again in the future, but at the moment that is still not possible.

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
