Burngreave Library

Great news! Burngreave Library has reopened.

We look forward to welcoming you back.

We are now open Mondays and Wednesdays 10am-1pm, and Fridays 10am-1pm and 2pm-5pm until further notice.

We are mindful the pandemic isn't over and have been working hard to ensure everyone is safe in the library. 

Here are some things you will need to do when visiting:


  • wear a face covering

  • hand sanitise at the entrance to the library

  • social distance

  • return your books using the RFID machine if you can (we can help you with this)

  • don't visit the library if you have any Covid, cold or flu symptoms

The services we are offering are:

  • Book borrowing and returns

  • DVD and CD borrowing

  • Computer use and printing (we now have brand new computers)

  • Scanning

  • Photocopying

Since we are a small library we will be managing the numbers of people who can come in at any one time to avoid overcrowding. Because of social distancing we only have four computers available so we also need to limit the time you can spend on a computer to half an hour per visit.


Our study areas and soft furnishings are not currently available except in the children's area.


We hope you will understand the need for these new arrangements. Thank you for helping to keep the library a safe place for everyone.  

Other open libraries near to you are Central Library and Firth Park Library.


You can find opening hours & more information below.

The Sheffield E-library is free to join and use for Sheffield library members.
