We have a unique reciprocal relationship with Broward County Board of County Commissioners so that everyone who lives, works, or goes to school in Broward County can have an Alvin Sherman Library Card. A Broward County Library Card is different from ours. Here’s what ours looks like:
Even though they’re different, if your Broward County Library Card is in good standing you can get an Alvin Sherman Library Card immediately. It takes just one minute.
How do I apply?
If you do not have a current Broward County Library Card, you have to apply in person at the circulation desk on the first floor. To save time, you can pre-register online or print an application. You will need either a Florida driver’s license or an ID Card issued by the DMV.
If these aren’t available, please bring two forms of identification from the following list–one has to have a photo–that can verify your eligibility and current address.
- school ID card
- other government-issued photo ID
- employee ID card
- printed personal check
- credit card statement
- rental or property tax receipt
- business mail with current postmark.
If you are under the age of 18, your parent or legal guardian is responsible for the issuance of your library card.
Oops. I lost my card
That’s alright. It happens. Call our circulation department ((954) 262-4601) and report your card lost or stolen. Replacement cards are one ($1) dollar.
