Book loans from Stannington Library's Yellow Sticker Collection - (click the link to search our Yellow Sticker catalogue). We have a large collection of adult and children's books. The Yellow Sticker Collection is a mix of brand new books, purchased just for Stannington Library, and quality donated books.

Reservation of books from Stannington Library's Yellow Sticker Collection. If a book is out on loan we can reserve it for you - call in or phone and speak to a volunteer. When the book is back in the library we will contact you, then put it on the Reserved Items shelf ready for collection. Sadly you cannot currently log in to the online catalogue yourself to manage your account - but hopefully soon!

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.
