Shepherd Community Library History


In February 2011, the Chippewa River District Library System acquired the old Kentwood Pharmacy building (257 W. Wright Avenue) in downtown Shepherd as the future site of the Shepherd Community Library. While renovations to the building included upgrading the heating, electrical, and networking systems.  Some changes to interior walls helped define the space for patron usage, and historic windows were uncovered to fully utilize natural light.  Upgrades within the building allowed for more computer workstations, laptops, and wireless access and provided more room for study and reading space.  Programming space was added to increase programming and library activities for the Shepherd community.  The official Grand Opening of the Shepherd Community Library was held on Thursday, September 20, 2012.
