Classics Collections

Our Adult Classics Collection and Children's Classics Collection are currently housed away from our public shelves as there is not room for them in the main library area. Sadly, this means that you will not be able to browse them in person - but you can browse our lists!

Fines have been suspended until 31st December 2021. NB: fines incurred up to the end of February 2020 will need to be paid.

See our User Guide for more information about what services we offer.


We are very happy to accept donations of Books, DVDs, CDs, Video Games and Jigsaw Puzzles - so please keep us in mind if you have some items to donate. There's a crate for donations in the foyer, so please call in any time we are open.

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
