There are different ways to support us:


Help us with Funding: We are totally dependent on donations to keep open!

Volunteers have now been running the Broomhill Community Library since October 2014. Sheffield City Council does provide some support to keep the library open, but not everything that we need.

We need to raise funds to maintain what we currently offer (we have extended the opening hours by 2 hours a week) and so that we can keep going. Your kind donations to date have helped us to improve some of the facilities in the library and there is always more that we can improve in a building that is around 150 years old.

If you hear of any organisations offering grants please drop us a line and we will be in touch.

Please be generous, every pound you can give will go towards our running costs.

Your library service in Broomhill is provided by volunteers.

Click here to register your interest for volunteering at the library and tell us about your skills and experience you can offer and your availability!

We have an amazing group of local people who have signed up to give a bit of time each month. We offer training, if needed, and the opportunity to help people to be part of the community and contribute to the library resource needs.

Our volunteers are essential to keep the library open - both in terms of staffing the library and providing the service and also in the background - as Trustees, with children's activities, in fund-raising and with administration and the usual activities in running a modest charity.

We'd love to hear from you if you're interested in joining our volunteers.
