NSU Alvin Sherman Library

Letter from the Editor

As we say goodbye to 2015, we want to wish you and your family a happy and joyous holiday season and a healthy 2016.  The library will be open throughout the holiday season.  Please check our holiday hours here.  We encourage you to keep yourself or your family busy by checking out materials from the library.  Remember, we have a  large collection of the latest video games and movies as well as best-sellers. 

If you want to come in for an easy going program, join us for Crafternoon at the Library, Book Bracelets and Bows and Sherman Yarn Lovers

This year the library enjoyed many milestones including issuing our 100,000th library card, and serving more than 90,000 people at our hundreds of public events. We received honors for South Florida Parenting Magazine and Broward Family Life to name a few. 

It is our mission to constantly find ways to serve you.  This coming January, you will see a new and updated look for the Enews. We hope you like it!

Thank you again for using the Alvin Sherman Library.  It is our honor and pleasure to serve you and your family.
