New Year’s Resolution: Join the Circle of Friends!

2019 New Year's Resolution Cof-Sharkbytes Image

Thanks to the membership dues and contributions from our members, the Circle of Friends truly makes a difference — by changing the way students study, helping youngsters learn to read, and building a love for reading! Over the years, the funds allocated by the Circle of Friends have resulted in so many positive changes to YOUR Library.  Just look around… The Circle of Friends Collaborative Study Room, the Chihuly Glass Garden, enhancements to the Gallery, Teen Room, Children’s Library and more!

This past year alone, the Friends helped:

  • Sponsor StoryFest: an early literacy event, which has had an average annual attendance of over 5,000. Last year alone the Library gave away over 2,100 books and added more than 600 new library cards. The Circle of Friends has already promised their continued support for 2019!
  • Support programs like Surviving Skokie, which was shown in conjunction with a panel discussion and The 10 Days of Connection Initiative
  • Provided funding for the Writing Workshop Series, expanded STEM programming, purchased Early Literacy stations, new tables, padded chairs and more!

News Flash! Now, you can join or renew your membership with the Circle of Friends for the NSU Alvin Sherman Library at the very low rate of $25 a year for NSU faculty, staff and students. Enjoy free cocktail receptions and priority seating at events and more. Most importantly, you will know your membership goes a long way in providing vital support of the NSU and Broward County community as well as the NSU Annual Fund!
