Notice of closure of Libraries and Archives


In response to the Coronavirus pandemic, Sheffield City Council will close all library and archive service points to the public from Friday 20th March.

This relates to all libraries in the city run by the council and our archives at Shoreham Street.

We have extended return dates for books and no fines will be incurred during this period of closure. Customers with reservations will not be able to collect them at this time.

We will continue to provide online library services via our e-library and a simple registration process to become a member click here

Additional titles to the e-book catalogue will continue to be updated and you can download to read on your devices for free. We also have a large range of e-audio books, e-comics and a good selection of current e-magazines, also accessible free of charge.

How we provide library services during this time will be constantly reviewed.
