Building a Better Library


The NSU Alvin Sherman Library is undergoing some exciting upgrades, thanks to two very generous donors.  Circle of Friends’ board members, Ann Porterfield (Board Secretary), and Peter Woolf (Vice President) along with his wife Fran are the first to help us update two of our 23 study rooms. The revamp is starting with new and improved furniture and the latest technology to enhance the patron’s experience. Each room has a 40” TV display which lets patrons connect their laptops or wirelessly to share and work collaboratively with others.

The Study Rooms in the NSU Alvin Sherman Library are one of the most requested and used facilities by students and patrons. These upgrades will truly enhance our students’ and community patrons’ experiences. For more information about how you too can make a difference and update a NSU Alvin Library study room, please contact Diane Klein, Director of Development at / 954-262-2171.
