Save the Date for the Sherman Library

                  Women's Soiree


The Sherman Library is open and thriving. The contributions of so many people over the years made this dream a reality.


If you’ve visited us you know what a beautiful space the new Sherman Library is. We promise to take care of the facility and provide you with the best possible library services we can. To do this we need your help. The majority of support of the library comes from volunteer efforts, member donations and fundraisers.


We ask you kindly to support your new library by getting involved in any way you can. Upcoming fundraising events include a Women’s Soiree-May 23, Book Sale-May 24 (accepting donations now!)  and a Family BBQ-June 6.


To get things rolling we hope you will save the date for our delightful Women’s Soiree.

"Hateship, Friendship, Courtship, Loveship, Marriage"

by Alice Munro

Discussion led by Stephanie Spinner



The Sherman Library's 2014 adult book discussion series begins on Friday, April 11 at 7:30 PM with "Hateship, Friendship, Courtship, Loveship, Marriage," by Alice Munro. These nine stories (including “The Bear Came Over the Mountain,” which became the film “Away From Her”) are told with Munro's characteristic insight, subtlety, and bone‐dry humor. One of the great masters of the short story form, Alice Munro has been called “our Chekhov."  She was recently awarded the 2013 Nobel Prize for Literature.


Our informal gathering will be at the newly re-opened library. Refreshments will be served. 


Copies of the books may be picked up at the library. Please contact Library Director Millie Loeb at or 860-354-2455 to sign up, or for more information.

Children’s Book Campaign

Purchase a book to commemorate the new

Sherman Library!


Today libraries are much more than just books but it’s hard to imagine a library without them.  Books educate, enrich, entertain and shape us.


The Sherman Library wants the our building's bookshelves filled with new books. As new and fresh as our renovated, restored and expanded facility.


You can help us reach this goal!  Become part of the effort to “restock our shelves” by purchasing a book to add to the children’s collection. It’s a great way to honor or remember someone and be part of this momentous undertaking in our community.


It’s simple. Stop by the new library to choose from the books on display, select a new or classic title from our list, you make a suggestion of your choice or leave it up to us to decide. Children’s books can be purchased for $20.


Every book you buy includes a personalized bookplate with the words you request and will be on special display for a year.


Thank you for your support of the Sherman Library!
