Alvin Sherman Library

Letter from the Editor

On December 8, 2001, the Alvin Sherman Library officially opened its doors to the NSU community and the public. Today, it is a cultural and learning center serving more than 480,000 visitors each year. On average, our reference librarians answer 32,100 questions a year and we circulate almost 300,000 items including everything from video games to best sellers. Large and small groups use our meeting rooms. Every day the spacious atrium welcomes young and old. Happy 10th Birthday to this vibrant community resource!
