“Stannington Library volunteers have elected to follow government and Sheffield City Council guidelines and close until further notice. All activities, group meetings and class visits associated with the library are therefore suspended.
“We want to assure our borrowers that any books which become overdue in this period will not incur fines. The council have also extended loan dates on all books to 1st August.
“We will continue to monitor all official sources and inform people as soon as possible when we are re-opening. In the meantime, may we wish everyone in Stannington and everyone who visits the library wherever they are from, good health.”

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.
