The Grant County Library, located in Sheridan, Arkansas, was started in April of 1935 by a group of ladies concerned about the lack of books in the state of Arkansas. Mrs. Clarice Johnson Pollard, one of the ladies of the group, became the first librarian. The library, originally held in the Legion Hut, is now housed at 210 North Oak in Sheridan and is a member of the Mid-Ark Regional Library System.
It is the mission of the Grant County Library to provide quality materials and services which fulfill educational, informational, cultural, and recreational needs of the community in an atmosphere that is welcoming, respectful, and professional, while encouraging all to discover, dream and thrive!
We have an incredible staff that work diligently to provide a safe, inviting atmosphere to learn, explore, take care of business, or just relax. Have questions? Just give us a call or email and we will be happy to assist you!
