Special Collections at the Sharon Public Library

Foreign Language Collections
We currently have books and ebooks in Russian, Chinese, and Hebrew. These collections continue to expand, and soon we hope to add additional materials in Portuguese and Hindi as well.

The Foreign Language collections are located near our public-use computers, between our Adult Fiction and ESOL collections.

Alzheimer's & Dementia Resources
Do you know someone who is suffering the effects of Alzheimer's or dementia? Find information, resources, and support in this Special Collection, located behind the Reference Desk just before the YA section.

Resources for Caregivers of Children with Special Needs
In the Library, books related to persons with special needs are found under the call numbers:
  • 371.8 through 371.9
  • 616.85 through 616.89
  • 649.15
We also maintain a comprehensive online resource page with links to local, state, and federal organizations, medical information resources, and more for those seeking additional support.

Digitized Historical Collection
In 2014, the Sharon Public Library began digitizing parts of its historical collection to provide off-site access to these documents. Thanks to funding provided by the Digital Commonwealth, we will be able to continue expanding this resource over the next few years.

Access our Digitized Historical Collection.
