 You can now place holds on Yellow Sticker books, either at the reception desk or by phoning 0114 2377657, and be notified when they’re available.

Maps for our Open Gardens weekend will be available from the library from Friday 24 May. A map (£5) gets you in to all 14 gardens. The open weekend is 8 and 9 June. 

There are a number of ways you can support the library financially. Visit our support page for more info.

The company which used to take our unwanted books is no longer providing this service, which creates a significant disposal problem for us. Consequently, we are having to be more selective in the book donations we can accept. Please do not be offended if the donations you offer are turned away.
