Who on earth is this Martin Vaughan, if that is his real name, who has such a grudge against volunteer libraries and especially my own local library at Stannington.

And take it upon himself to do a review of that library.

Perhaps it is time for a review to be done on him and what is actually going on in his bitter little mind.

He really does have some sort of personal vendetta and his inaccuracies are astounding.

The messy jumble sale of books inside the front entrance to which he refers is actually a well presented and tidy selection of books to purchase, thereby helping with library funds, and he must be some sort of contortionist to have been able to see Dungworth and and Bradfield from the library windows.

It’s all got very silly and very nasty and I would ask people to ignore him completely.

I have used Stannington Library for over twenty years, having worked in Sheffield Libraries myself in the past, and I have every confidence in the service they provide.

It's a friendly and well run place with enthusiastic and competent volunteer workers.

There is access to information, both local and city wide, and it hosts many events which include baby and toddler groups, friendship and conversation afternoons, gardening club, writers group, live theatre and so much more.

I order quite a considerable number of books each week, many new stock, which come through efficiently and speedily.

I am so grateful to the volunteers who man my library as the alternative would be unthinkable.
