Books on Hold from the Sheffield Library Catalogue

Whilst we are temporarily closed, the opportunity to reserve (place on HOLD) books from the Sheffield Library Catalogue and have them sent to Stannington Library has been suspended.

If you have any books already on HOLD, you should receive an enquiry (phone call, email or letter depending on your records) from Sheffield Libraries asking if you would like delivery to another library that is still open, e.g. Hillsborough.

Any books on Hold that have already been delivered to Stannington Library will be kept until we re-open, when you will be notified that they are available for collection.

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.
