The best way to read or listen to books is to download the Libby App on your devices: Android or iOS (iPhone/iPad/iPod touch) or on your Windows 10 computer - see how to on the flyer below. Alternatively visit using the browsers listed on the flyer below.

It is not possible to use your Kindle currently.

If you need a reminder of your Library Pin Number you can call into your local library and ask them to look it up for you, or contact Sheffield Libraries at:

The Sheffield eLibrary is available 24/7 .

There are vast amounts of eMagazines, eBooks and eAudiobooks to choose from in the library!

The interface for using the eLibrary changed to Libby from 24th February 2021. The previous interface, RBDigital, has stopped working now.

Sheffield Libraries have sent this flyer out:

From the 24th of February 2021, the Sheffield eLibrary will move from RB Digital to Libby – the one-tap reading app.

The Libby app is the easiest way to get started with the thousands of free eBooks, eAudiobooks, and eMagazines available from Sheffield Libraries.

Using Libby

  • Install the Libby app from the app store on your Android, iOS (iPhone/iPad/iPod touch), or Windows 10 device. Or visit in your Chrome, Firefox, Safari, or Edge browser.
  • In Libby, follow the prompts to find Sheffield Libraries and sign in with a valid library card.
  • Browse your library’s collection and borrow a title.
  • Borrowed titles appear under Shelf > Loans and download to the app automatically when you're on Wi-Fi, so you can read them when you’re offline.
  • Tap Manage Loan to see options like Renew and Return.

Happy reading!

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.
