New Internet reservation station at library

Spring book sale also coming up


The Sherwood Library has installed an automated internet reservation system for use when all terminals are full. The system is easy to use; simply enter your library card number, wait until you are assigned to a specific computer, then log on as usual at your assigned computer. The system will block anyone else from logging on to a 'reserved' computer for the first five minutes of your reservation. Ask at the front desk if you have any questions.


Don't forget the Sherwood Library for your spring vacation needs. We have reading materials for both relaxation and information; audio books and music CDs for traveling; and CD-ROMs and videos for rainy afternoons.


Book, audio book, video, CD, and DVD donations are being accepted at the Library in preparation for the Friends of the Sherwood Library Used Book Sale scheduled for Saturday, April 28. All proceeds from this annual event benefit the Library.

Donations of clean and usable items will be taken during the Library's open hours. We ask that materials not be left outside when the building is closed.

Please NO magazines, Readers' Digest Condensed Books, textbooks, or National Geographic Magazines.

If you are interested in becoming a member of the Friends of the Library please feel free to attend their next meeting on Thursday, March 1 at 6 p.m. in the Library. This is the annual meeting where officers are elected.


Through the County-wide "Cultural Pass to Adventure" program, Sherwood Library makes free passes available to the following cultural institutions: The Children's Museum, The Japanese Garden, The Portland Art Museum, The Portland Classical Chinese Garden and the Oregon Sports Hall of Fame.

The loan period is one day, with no renewals allowed. Passes are available for pick-up during regular library hours and must be returned before the Library opens the following day.

The Library takes reservations for Cultural Passes in person or over the phone at 503-625-6688. Reservations may be made up to one month in advance of use.

Passes not reserved are made available on a first-come, first-serve basis.

The success of this program rests on the borrower. All due dates need to be observed so that the next borrower can pick up their reserved pass. There is only one pass for each institution per library and if late or lost, all borrowers are affected.

More information about each pass, such as attraction hours and how many people are admitted with each pass, is available on the WILInet site,, by clicking on Events and then Cultural Pass to Adventure.
