The Sherman Public Library encourages patrons to read by promoting free and easy access to information and modern technology in the pursuit of lifelong learning. In the pursuit of this goal the Sherman Public Library offers the reading readiness program and the one-on-one literacy tutoring for adults. This Library collection includes non-circulating books, current and retrospective periodicals, microfilm and microfiche, Internet access, local history and genealogy.

Apart from assisting the library’s visitors with inter-library loans, the Reference department provides material and assistance with information needs on a variety of topics. The library hosts/sponsors various activities throughout the year. Among these activities are book reviews, children's author visit, pajama story time, and summer reading program for children.

Denison Public Library was officially opened in 1935 with a total of 1,200 books. The main floor now houses the adult and rare book selections, reference and information services, a conference room, and staff lounge while the mezzanine serves as a storage area for back issues of periodicals, the microfilm holdings, and the microfilm readers. The spacious new wing to the building houses the business office, technical services, lending services, children’s services, the oversize book collections, audio visual materials collection and equipment, new and large type print books, current issues of magazines and newspapers, the copier, art reproductions, and the meeting room.
