North Lauderdale Library

This 20,000 SF library includes 70,000 items, but as a branch of the Broward County library system, residents have access to millions of volumes by ordering materials from throughout the system. One of the most interesting features of the library is the art on the windows by Richard Heipp. It’s a series of “Shadow Silhouettes” illustrating the fables and myths of mankind.

Some of the amenities include a 125-person multi-purpose room; a 20-person conference room; a group study room for students; a tutoring room; 33 public-use computers; and a storytelling/program room.
