The Sherman Library is pleased to announce local artist Gay Lynette Morris, will showcase her beautiful and unique "SilkWorks." 

Morris's works are highly patterned, as she grew up looking at kimono in Karuizawa, Japan at a time when women still wore kimono as every day attire. Her parents were missionaries in Kingston, Jamaica so combined with this early influence is a tropical exuberance and color palate. In addition, a whimsical link to her Australian roots mixes it all together to create a vibrant flair in her outstanding style of art. Her silk paintings have been exhibited throughout the world showing in numerous galleries and her designs sold to commercial fabric houses and home furnishing manufacturers.

 

Her works can be found in books on the subject of silk painting by Susan Moyerl and are available through the library. 

 

 

A Barn Transformed - An exhibit to celebrate and interpret the Sherman Library's recently renovated historic barn.

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!
