Stannington Library logo

Stannington Library will only open its doors to the public if at least two volunteers are available to oversee the session. In this we are no different from any other library, volunteer or local authority-run.

To date, we have only failed to open for an advertised session on one occasion and that was only because there was a power failure affecting our part of Stannington.

Visit our Volunteers page for more information about how to become a volunteer.

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.
