History

Sherwood Branch Library

Sherwood Branch Library is located in the Sherwood Forest Mall. We renovated and expanded in 2005 and we now share space with the Northwest London Resource Centre and the Middlesex London Health Unit.

The Canada Games Aquatic Centre and the Medway Arena are just across the street. These facilities provide a focal point for a diverse community made up of the Fox Hollow, Hyde Park, and Medway planning districts.

Historical Facts about Sherwood Branch

March 12, 2005:  The Sherwood Forest Branch officially opens in a new location within Sherwood Forest Mall with a distinct children's area, computer commons, additional meeting rooms and an expanded popular reading area. The library shares the facility with the Northwest London Community Resource Centre.

January 2009:  The Library Settlement Project is started at four locations: Beacock, Central, Jalna and Sherwood. The project is funded by Citizenship and Immigration Canada in partnerships with the Centre for Lifelong Learning, the London Cross Cultural Centre, LUSO Community Services and the South London Neighbourhood Resource Centre,
