Frecheville Library is an ‘associate library’ which means that we are a community library run entirely by volunteers.
What do our users say about us?
‘Your library is so efficient’
‘Your volunteers couldn’t do enough for us’
Reading Challenge 2018 Award Ceremony
Last Saturday we hosted the awards for the children who completed this year’s reading challenge.
Every year, thousands of families all over the country take part in the UK’s biggest reading event for children in libraries, the Summer Reading Challenge, run by the charity The Reading Agency.
The aim of the challenge is to get children to read any six books of their choice from their library during the summer holidays.
It was well attended and this year our special guest was PCSO Roger Shalome who kept all mischief makers in check as well as presenting the medals and certificates to the children who had completed the challenge!
Well done to all those who took part!
We are still part of Sheffield City Council’s Library Management System and as such you are able to reserve books from any of the Sheffield Libraries for collection at Frecheville. You can still use your existing library card. Call in and have a look around at our selection of books, audio books and DVDs.
If you wish to join the library then please call in with a valid form of ID and we will happily process a card for you – it is free to join.
We also have a good selection of new books that are on our own issuing system. Call in and take a look at the books with an ‘FLLC’ sticker on the spine.
We provide tea, coffee, buns, biscuits etc to all visitors from just 50p. Please ask at the desk to place your order.
Did you know you can access a computer using the People’s Network at Frecheville Library? In addition, we also have free WiFi access.
You can also print or photocopy for a small charge.
We also have a large selection of good quality second-hand books for sale from just 20p each in our dedicated bookshop.
