About the Library

Sherwood Public Library is the southern-most library in Washington County. Our Mission is to inspire discovery, enrich lives and build community through equitable access to life-long learning. The local collection of nearly 50,000 items offers books, Blu-Rays, DVDs, CDs, graphic novels, magazines, newspapers, audio books, board games and more—in addition to e-books, downloadable audiobooks, and electronic learning resources. 

The Library began as a dedicated shelf of books in the local drugstore in 1935 and became a department of the City in 1969. Sherwood Public Library became of founding member of the newly formed WCCLS in 1976. The current location, opened in late 2005, is 14,400 square feet, offering free wireless internet access through Sherwood Broadband, 13 public internet stations, a fireplace reading room and spaces to study, play and visit. Total annual circulation of library materials exceeds 365,000. In 2016, we provided 625 programs with 25,000 participants—15,000 of those in youth programs. The total value of library services provided last year is estimated at $8,360,000—a nearly 8-fold return on the annual budget. Each month we see over 20,000 visits to the library. We are proud to be the community’s living room and a strong contributor to what makes Sherwood a great place to live and work.
