A Shark Tale Worth Telling

Meet Sharkey – a shark pup out of water who’s made himself a home at the Alvin Sherman Library. Amidst a sea of book, he feeds his imagination with stories of all kinds. He loves to share these stories with other young readers during Sharkey’s Storytime.

Just like the thousands of kids who visit the library all year long, when Sharkey wants to check out new books or participate in library activities, he uses his very own library card. The Sharkey’s Crew library card. See what Sharkey’s up to and become a member of Sharkey’s Crew today!

Sharkey's Crew Card

Sharkey’s library card allows him to check out books, movies, video games, and more! He can return the materials to any Broward County Library.

  • ◦ Explore the library’s waters with the help of friendly librarians
