Holders of a Sheffield Libraries membership card can gain free access to any of the services above, except printing and photocopying for which charges are made.

If you do not have a membership card, you can also use our computer and WiFi networks as a guest, but a small charge will be made.

We also have extensive stocks of secondhand books, CDs and DVDs for sale. All proceeds from these sales go to support Stannington Library.

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
