Sherwood Library Closing to Prepare for Move to New Building

Sherwood Library Closing to Prepare for Move to New Building

The Central Arkansas Library System’s (CALS) Amy Sanders Library, 31 Shelby Drive, Sherwood, will close beginning January 22 to prepare for the move to the new library building located at 10200 Johnson Drive. The exact opening date of the new building is to be determined, but it is expected to be early March.

The library will maintain regular business hours through January 20. Any hold items that are not claimed by January 20 will be available for pickup at Main Library, 100 Rock Street, Little Rock, unless another location is requested. Patrons may return items to the book drop located on the outside of the current building or to any CALS location.

The new 14,500-square-foot facility will be located on 14 acres with amenities including three study rooms, a teen area, gallery space, and a 985-square-foot public meeting room.

Sherwood voters approved a 1.3 mill personal and property tax increase to issue bonds to fund a new library in November 2014. CALS broke ground on the new location in January 2017.
