Alvin Sherman Library


There is nothing like summer. Yes, it is hot and humid, but there is no pressure from school, no need to get after the kids to do their homework or prepare for that test. Instead, we get to enjoy summer's slower pace, the ability to read a great book or tackle a new project. We invite you and your family and friends to take advantage of this precious time by heading over to our "cool" library. Our librarians have planned a wonderful array of programming for children, tweens, teens and adults. Learn to fish or attract butterflies, enjoy the antics of Jiggleman or Geddy the Gecko! You'll be happy you ventured over here and don't be surprised if you start spending more time at the library.


Did you know that the Alvin Sherman Library offers you access at no charge to many consumer publications? Check out Value Line  or a host of fashion magazines like Harper's Bazaar or Vogue and even Vanity Fair. You'll need your Alvin Sherman Library or your Shark card to enter the site.  Problems? Give one of our librarians a call and they can walk you through the process. 954-262-5477.

Check out In the Spotlight for lots of fun and interesting information.
