Library open seven days a week again
The express services days of the Sherwood Public Library have been expanded. As of this writing, they are Monday through Saturday, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., and Sunday, 1 to 5 p.m. Browse inside the library, check out items, pick-up holds, use computers (no appointment needed), sign up for library cards, and purchase used books.
We are actively working on getting back to our pre-pandemic hours with evening hours. Check sherwoodoregon.gov/library or call 503-625-6688 for the latest. Curbside services continue at our Pine Street entrance.
WHAT'S YOUR OPINION?
We want Sherwood Public Library to be responsive to our community's needs. Will you take 10 minutes to tell us what you think? (If you submitted to the survey last month, please try again. Data was unfortunately compromised and we would still love to hear from you.)
Get started at sherwoodoregon.gov/library. We also have hardcopy surveys at the library or contact us at 503-625-6688 for a survey to be mailed to you. Survey results in the past have led to more bestsellers and new books in our collection, new furniture, Library of Things, test proctoring, 3D printing classes and more. Your feedback matters. Enter to win a prize drawing for a $25 gift card. All responses are confidential.
