Gleadless Library


The most important way you can support the library is simple:  come along and join in!

New Gleadless Library is at the heart of the communities of Charnock and Basegreen but also serves Hollinsend, Herdings and the Derbyshire villages of Ford and Ridgeway beyond.  We are situated in a good location with excellent transport links; near a tram stop, good bus routes and we have a small free car park. We are physically linked to a doctor’s surgery and pharmacy and many readers combine a visit to the library and the surgery.

Everyone is welcome! We are a volunteer-run community library working in partnership with Sheffield City Council’s Library Service and with the other 15 volunteer libraries across the city. We have nearly 5000 books for you to choose from and you can also borrow or reserve books from any library in the city using your library card. But we have much more than books alone.

We also provide a range of other activities and services to local people.

You can also purchase light refreshments to enhance your visit.

It has been a difficult two years for the library, particularly as we are linked to the surgery   Like many others, we are still recovering from the pandemic . Although Covid regulations have been eased, we have kept a number of measures in place so that customers can be confident that the Library is a safe place to visit.

The library is run completely by dedicated and enthusiastic volunteers and is funded by grants and our own fund-raising activities. If you are interested in supporting the library, just take a look at how to support us and volunteering to find out how you can get involved.  There are lots of ways to support us, from donating books to volunteering some time.
