Staff at Bradfield Dungworth School and volunteers from Stannington Library organised a celebration of the success achieved by children at the school in this year’s Summer Reading Challenge. Headteacher Helen Adams invited library volunteers into the school to present medals and certificates during a school assembly. Also acknowledged at the event was nine-year-old Mahli Sutton whose story, A Better Place, won second prize in Stannington Library’s recent Magic Words young people’s writing competition.

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.
