Status Update

Status update 7 August 2020

As from 24 July, our “click and collect” service is now live.  You can pre-order books and hearing aid batteries in three ways.

  1. Using a form on the web site using this link. This is the preferred method.
  2. By completing a printed pre-order form (available from Key Homecare, next to Cello) and dropping it in the mailbox by the library entrance
  3. By phoning in your order to 0114 2377657. The phone will only be staffed during C&C sessions and at limited other times.

The “collect” sessions will operate from 10.00 – 12.00 on Monday and Friday mornings.

We’re also working on creating a covid secure environment, and hope to re-open the library for “limited browsing” on Monday, Wednesday and Friday afternoons from 2-4pm, starting on Monday 7 September. There will be marked zones to encourage social distancing, and a one-way system in operation. Users will be required to wear a face covering. Children will not be allowed in but adults may choose books on their behalf from the children’s library. There will be limited access to public computers and photocopying facilities.

Chris Brown (Chairman, Friends of Greenhill Library)

Patrick Coghlan

It is with great sadness that we report the death of Patrick Coghlan, who passed away in April after a long period in intensive care with C-19. Patrick played a lead role in establishing Greenhill as a volunteer-run library and was our chairman for its first four years. More recently, he was the instigator of our project to open our new branch in Lowedges. He was passionate about libraries and reading, and his vision and calm wisdom will be sorely missed. Patrick used to talk about still being able to visit the library with his Zimmer frame when he was 90; sadly that is not now going to happen.

Pictured here are Patrick with Darrell Porter (council volunteer library support), councillor Mary Lea, and library operations manager Ann Hartley.

Up and running at Lowedges!

Feb 12th 2020 – Our first day of operation at Lowedges

Meet Akin … one of our newest volunteers, who will be working regularly in the new library. Akin comes to us with experience of working in other libraries around Sheffield, notably Firth Park, where he was “Children’s Champion” for three years. 

Our thanks also to Lucy, Ann, Patrick, Wendy, and the others who have worked hard to turn our vision of a library in Lowedges into reality.

One of the first families to visit us. This was taken just before we received a wonderfully chaotic deluge of children and young mums after school finished. Altogether we signed up 13 new members.

This young reader was keen to get stuck straight in.

The library will be open from 2pm – 5pm each Wednesday and 10am – 1pm each Thursday. Come and visit us in the Lowedges Community Centre (near the top entrance to Greenhill Park).
