About us

Broomhill Library was opened in September 1957 as part of the library service in Sheffield and ran successfully for over 50 years. After a review in 2014 the council decided that it could no longer fully support all the libraries in the city. At first it seemed that Broomhill Library would close. The council then offered funding for volunteers to take over running the library, and Broomhill Community Library was born.

Broomhill Community Library is run entirely by volunteers – from the staff who help with the library books through to those who are transforming the garden.

The library is run by Trustees, Session Coordinators and other groups who each meet on a monthly basis.
