Director’s Message Dear Broward County Library Customers: Right now we are all facing challenges unlike any we have experienced before. We are uncertain of what comes next for ourselves, our families, our communities and our world. Everything from how we live, work and interact has changed so quickly, but one thing remains the same – Broward County Library is here for you. I invite you to become acquainted with our array of free online services that can help you and your family through these difficulties and beyond. Maybe you need an entertaining distraction – we have movies and TV shows you can stream, bestselling eBooks for all ages and music you can download – all for free. Perhaps homeschooling is your focus right now and you need live online tutoring, gradeappropriate reading materials or free kids’ activities – we can help with that. Or you’re worried about your family’s future and need trusted resources to help weather the storm and prepare for what’s next – we’ve got that for you, too. Wherever you are, so is Broward County Library -log on and stay connected.

Sincerely,

Kelvin Watson

BROWARD COUNTY LIBRARY DIRECTOR
