Library provides income to local shops

Have your say

Stannington Library is doing such a good job in providing a social and community centre for the people of Stannington, not to mention the opportunities for bettering oneself.

It provides the free-to-access computer service to search for jobs, the self-help, children’s story times and adult reading groups.

There is also the contribution that the library makes to the local economy. Many users of the library, myself included, walk down to the local shops after visiting.

The library provides local business with income, they would otherwise lose should the library close.

The three staff who work there are so friendly, helpful and knowledgeable. It would be such a shame were this most excellent outpost of Sheffield’s excellent library service to close.
