The Sperry Library first opened its doors on November 6, 1976. Initially library service in Sperry Community consisted of a weekly visit from the bookmobile. A group of twenty-four civic-minded ladies and Claude Miller, the spokesperson, formed the Sperry Friends of the Library Group in 1975. Their dream was a branch library for the Sperry community. Mr. Miller and the Friends Group requested the Board of County Commissioners to come to the aid of the community and help the Library system build a library. The Board of County Commissioners asked a local builder, Jim Roberts, to build a structure to house a library. The building was then presented to the Library Commission as a surprise gift.
