About Sherwood Public Library

The Sherwood Public Library began as a shelf of books in a local drugstore in 1935. The collection was later moved to a rented house. In 1969, the City of Sherwood agreed to support the library, which was moved to the basement of a historic house that served as City Hall. A Friends of the Library group formed in 1976 and began local fund-raising which, combined with LSCA money, built a new 3,000 square foot library in 1986.

In December 2005, the Sherwood Public Library & City Hall was opened, funded primarily through urban renewal funds and sales of city-owned properties. The new library features 14,000 square feet of space with more desks, Internet PCs, comfortable chairs, shelves and library materials. An added feature is a gas fireplace surrounded by comfortable seating in an inviting newspaper and magazine area.

The mission statement of the Sherwood Library:

The Sherwood Library will provide the highest level of customer service to all library users through appropriate and usefully organized resources, equitable service policies and equitable access. The Library will provide information resources to the public in the most effective and efficient manner possible and continuously seek to improve and expand service. This service includes the assistance of skilled and courteous staff members and the provision of programs designed to promote the use of the library and respond to community needs.
