Is the Alvin Sherman Library card the same as a Broward Library card?

Broward County library and Alvin Sherman Library have a unique partnership. They do not have the same card, but you can check out books at the Alvin Sherman Library return them to any Broward County Library location. Visit public.library.nova.edu/card for more information. If you don't already have an Alvin Sherman Library card, sign up for one at StoryFest!






I don’t have an Alvin Sherman Library Card or SharkCard – what should I do? 

Alvin Sherman Library cards are free to anyone who lives, works or goes to school in Broward County. SharkCards are for NSU staff. 

Option 1. Apply at lib.nova.edu/cardform/. Your card will be ready for pick up prior to StoryFest at the library’s Circulation Desk on the first floor. 

Option 2. Apply at StoryFest! Look for the library card sign-up table on the library’s lawn (or you can also sign-up inside the library at the Circulation Desk).


I lost my Alvin Sherman Library card – what should I do? 
Call our Circulation Department (954-262-4601) and report your card lost or stolen. Replacement cards are one dollar ($1).   

If you do not get a replacement card prior to StoryFest, we can look up your information (bring ID) to enter you in the drawing. 


Can I still attend StoryFest if I don’t live, work or go to school in Broward County? 

Yes, the event is open to everyone.
