Letter from the Editor
Last month, nearly 4,000 people visited the NSU campus for our 7th annual StoryFest! It was a fantastic event recognizing cultural diversity and the love of reading.
This month we are celebrating National Library Week which recognizes the contributions of our nation's libraries and library workers to promote library use and support. From free access to books and online resources for families to library business centers that help support entrepreneurship and retraining, libraries offer an opportunity to all.
In partnership with the Broward County Libraries, the NSU Alvin Sherman Library is committed to building a stronger community.
