Burngreave Library

Burngreave Library is reopened its doors on Monday 18th October and the team look forward to welcoming you back.

The library will be open Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays 10am-1pm until further notice.

They 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 (they have masks available)
  • hand sanitise at the entrance to the library
  • social distance
  • return your books using the RFID machine if you can (help can be given with this)
  • don’t visit the library if you have any Covid, cold or flu symptoms

The services on offer are:

  • Book borrowing and returns
  • DVD and CD borrowing
  • Computer use and printing (They now have brand new computers)
  • Scanning (They also have a new scanner)
  • Photocopying
  • Local information

The library will be managing the numbers of people who can come in at any one time to avoid overcrowding. Because of social distancing only four computers will be available so the time you can spend on a computer will be limited to half an hour per visit.

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

The staff team hope you will understand the need for these new arrangements and thank you for helping to keep the library a safe place for everyone.
