"You can never get a cup of tea large enough or a book long enough to suit me" - C.S. Lewis


Becoming a member of your local library has never been easier... and we'd love you to join Stoney Stanton Community Library today.


The library is a free service to everyone. Once you have filled out the registration form you will be issued a library card which lasts for two years and you will be able to access all the facilities. Books may be taken out for three weeks, renewed online or in the library.


Please note, late returns will incur a fine. 


If the library is closed when you need to return books, please post them through the letterbox.

As a member of the Leicestershire Libraries, you can use any library in the county, borrow and return books to any branch, have access to the computers free of charge, use the digital reader ebook system Borrowbox and take part in the children’s Summer Reading Challenge as a junior member.

If you wish to request a specific title you can order it online through the Leicestershire Libraries portal or we can do it in the library for you, just call in. Book orders are £1 each for adult requests and free for children’s, paid once the book is available. All proceeds go to the library.
