About the Library

Sherwood Public Library

The Sherwood Public Library began in 1935 as a shelf of books in a local drugstore and later moved to a rented house. In 1969, the Library became a department of the City of Sherwood and moved to the basement of the historic Morback House, then City Hall. In 1976, Sherwood Public Library became a founding member of WCCLS. The Friends of the Library group formed the same year to begin fundraising, which, combined with grant money, led to a new 3,000 square foot library in 1986.

The current location, designed by Thomas Hacker Architects, opened in December 2005 as a joint-use building with City Hall, funded with urban renewal funds and sales of city-owned properties. The Library now features 14,000 square feet of space, areas for study, socializing, and computer use, a fireplace area, and Community Room. The Library is open 7 days a week, hosts 400+ programs each year and houses over 46,000 items.

Upcoming Library Events

Wednesday, August 31, 2016
5:00 PM to 6:30 PM - Sherwood Public Library: Join us for a very special 'Thank You, Miss Teresa' party on Wednesday, August 31, 5:00 p.m. in the Community Room for an evening of gratitude, entertainment & cake for all ages.For background:Changes are coming to storytimes. With the recent passing of the WCCLS Levy, the Library is adding a new storytime, “Fun for Ones”, for the youngest toddlers who are just starting to walk, for a total of six weekly storytimes. For twenty years, storytimes have been offered as a contract service by locally reknowned Teresa Klepinger. Sherwood’s beloved “Story Lady” has brought books to life for a generation. In that time, the Library and the community have undergone tremendous changes and growth. City of Sherwood’s approved budget for the new fiscal year allocates funding to bring this service in-house for the first time in order to deliver seamless service from storytimes to other Library services, as well as to provide research, readers advisory, outreach and other programming. The new position was publicly posted in July. “Miss Teresa” will continue the contracted storytimes through August. A new schedule will go into effect in September.If you would like to be involved in this event or have other questions, please contact Library Manager Adrienne Doman Calkins at adriennec@wccls.org.
