Services & Activities

The Friends of the Sherman Public Library was chartered by a group of involved citizens interested in helping to expand and improve the services and facilities of the Library. Library programs such as Authorfest, Trick or Treat Village, the Summer Reading Club and Travel Video Brown Bag Lunches, would not be possible without the support of the Friends. Book sales are held in April and September to raise funds for library programming and supplies.  Visit the Friends Facebook page for upcoming events

Book Review Luncheons

The Friends of the Sherman Public Library sponsor six Book Review Luncheons each year, three in spring and three in fall. The presentation may be focused around a single book or an entire subject. The 2017 luncheons are being held at the Sherman Museum due to library renovations. The luncheons are held the first Wednesday at 11:45am in March, April, May, October, November, and December.  Lunch is provided by the Friends and there is no charge to attend.  Reservations are required and donations are welcome.  Please visit the calendar upcoming events.
The Friends of the Sherman Public Library will hold the Fall Book Sale on Saturday, September 16, 2017 from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. in conjunction with the Sherman Arts Festival at the Hope on Houston, formerly Key Memorial Church. There will be a preview sale for Friends members only, the night before, Friday, September 15, from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. Books range in price from $.25 to $1.
