About Us


We’re a completely voluntary library, so this means that virtually all our staff are local community volunteers who do not get paid.

With difficult economic times, we have evolved from a ‘potentially boring place where there are books’ into a vibrant centre where books play only a small part.

We can now offer classes in subjects from simple computing to maths and English (for those who were ‘away from school that day’!), through to knit and knatter, line-dancing and so much more!

Check out our weekly timetable for events, or for one-off, special events, see out ‘Latest News’ section down towards the bottom of the main page.

Please phone (0114) 203 9531 or (0114) 285 3093 or email: southeyvolunteers@gmail.com for more information.
