Sherwood Regional Library
2501 Sherwood Hall Lane
Alexandria, VA 22306-2799
Since opening in 1971 as the first regional library of FCPL, Sherwood
has been serving the needs of its neighbors in many ways using its unique
resources. Staff and volunteers provide hands-on technology classes and
one-on-one tutoring sessions in our computer tech lab on the second
floor. Our meeting space is used in partnership with both the American
Association of Retired Persons for tax assistance and the Literacy
Council of Northern Virginia for its family literacy classes. Our
youngest customers (and their parents) enjoy the Read to Me room with its
puzzles, flannel boards, and board books. Many of our local residents
know Sherwood Regional as the home of the Mount Vernon Farmers' Market on
Wednesday mornings from May to November.
The Friends of the Sherwood Library raise money for programming and special purchases though their book sorting and selling activities. We invite you to join our Friends and our volunteers to learn all the ways Sherwood benefits our community.
