Grayson County’s Best Kept Secret

The Library- A Hidden Gem in Sherman, Texas




The Library Grill was built in 1933 as a farmhouse and remained so until 1968.

It then went to serve as the city of Knollwood’s public library until 1976. It stood to be a staple in Grayson County, where the community could visit, take their children to pick up a book at this quaint farmhouse turned library.


The Roelke family purchased the property in 1976 and turned it into a bar. As the bar grew more and more popular, Mike decided to convert the property into a restaurant in the 2000s and the rest is history!


The Library Bar and Grill stands to be one of the best kept secrets of this growing town. The restaurant still carries the charming farmhouse feel to it. The restaurant is bigger than it looks from the outside! The property has 4 different dining rooms with a newly added “STUDY” overlooking the outdoor patio. The patio can be used to host a reception, wedding or any kind of party!

Whether you are looking to celebrate a special event or just enjoy a delicious meal with your loved ones, The Library houses everything you need to have a great night out!
