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.

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!
