You can ORDER & COLLECT books!

We still cannot open our doors for you to come in and browse, but you can order books for collection.

Click here to visit our Order & Collect page and get started.

AND DON’T FORGET – if you would like to try our Pot Luck option, you can take away one of our bags of donated books – free of charge – in the genre of your choice .

We are pleased to be able to accept donations of books, DVDs, CDs and Video Games now - but not jigsaw puzzles or any other items, as currently we are unable to sell them. There is a crate located in the foyer especially for donations.

We are able to offer our photocopying service once more - 10p per page - but please bring the correct money as we cannot give change.

You can still collect your hearing aid batteries from us.

Our re-opening programme is in progress. 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
