Service Updates

Sheffield Libraries Services and Opening Hours 

Due to the new variant of coronavirus and the higher rate of transmissions, we have been advised to withdraw access to public computers until further notice. We will still be offering a limited printing service via email. Please contact 01142734764 for more information. 

We hope to reinstate access to the computers as soon as we are able to do so.


We’ve been providing an Order and Collect service in a number of libraries since early August so that as many people as possible could borrow books and resources across the city.



Current Services

  • An Order and Collect service at all council-run libraries 
  • Online eLibrary available 24/7 for library members
  • A programme of online events
What is the Order and Collect Service?

The Order and Collect Service is for customers wishing to receive a pack of 5 books selected for them by library staff at all libraries across the city plus Central Library, based on their preferences for genre submitted by online form , email or phone.  Contact details for the libraries can be found on the City Council webpage.  

It is a minimum contact service. Customers will place their order and then collect a bag of 5 items (Books, non-fiction DVDs, audio books, graphic novels etc) for either adults or children from the foyer or an external door of the library. Customers may have up to two DVDs and two music CDs in addition to their 5 books. They will also be able to return books they have had on loan

All library fines have been suspended until the 31st March.

Online Events

We also have a growing list of online events for both adults and children.  For the latest updates on upcoming activities check out our social media channels on Facebook and Twitter, and our Eventbrite page.

You can also view selected recorded events for a limited time on our blog.


eLibrary open 24/7

We continue to provide online library services via our eLibrary and a simple registration process to become a member click here.  The eLibrary contains a large range of eBooks, eMagazines, eAudiobooks, and eComics.  These services are available free of charge to library members.


Home Library Service resumes

We are now providing home library service deliveries in our new electric van. The service delivers to any Sheffield resident who is unable to get to their local library and has no-one to help them do so, or who may be able to get to the library but cannot carry the books they’ve chosen. 
We can also offer the service on a temporary basis, for example whilst someone is recovering from an operation. For more information about this service customers can call 0114 273 4277 or email Mobileservices.Library@sheffield.gov.uk
