Order & Collect Guide

We continue to offer our Order & Collect service, even though we are open for book browsing.

How to Order

Either choose the titles and authors of books that you would like to borrow - see the links below to see how you can search the catalogues.

Or tell us the genre of books, or names of authors, you would like to read and we will choose five books for you.  We will look at your library record to make sure we don’t choose something you have taken out previously.

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.
