Stannington Library has started the New Year as it means to go on with more new books added to its shelves. Just before Christmas, managers at WHS Local on Stannington Road surprised and delighted volunteers with a gift box of brand new titles including such popular writers as James Patterson and David Baldacci. These and the library’s regular influx of books bought with funds raised by volunteers bring to almost 7,000 the number of titles added to the library’s stock list since the local collection was launched just three years ago.

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.
