Sherwood Branch

Due to Staff training, the Sherwood Branch has a delayed opening of 10 am on Monday, May 29. You may visit the Concession and Valley Park Branches as the next nearest locations.

The Sherwood Branch was opened as a storefront in a small plaza on Upper Ottawa Street in November 1966. In 1981, the Branch expanded and eventually moved to a larger and brighter facility in June 1991. Sherwood Branch was most recently renovated in 2010.

The Branch offers materials and programming for children, teens and adults.

The Sherwood Branch is located at 467 Upper Ottawa St, Hamilton, ON L8T 3T3
