About the Library
The Richard C. Sullivan Public Library of Wilton Manors has just completed its 60th year of operation. We are very proud of the many accomplishments that have been made in that time servicing the library needs of our community. The Library has become a destination for people of all ages. Whether it is to read, search for a job, participate in story time, or download an e-book from the comfort of their own home, it’s clear the residents of our great City are keeping the Library busy!
In 2017, almost 11,000 Library patrons borrowed books, DVDs, audio books, and magazines. The Library circulated more than 40,000 items, hosted over 100 programs, and welcomed over 3700 patrons of all ages at a Library program. Additionally, we provided over 14,000 patrons the use of public computers, and nearly 5200 patrons used the Library’s free Wi-Fi service on their personal devices.
In today’s technology-driven world, libraries provide a unique space for face-to-face cultural and community building. More than just a building with books, libraries provide visitors with resources to help them learn, explore, and connect.
We appreciate the commitment of the Friends of the Wilton Manors Library and the Library Advisory Board, and the support of our customers, volunteers, partners, advocates, and employees. We look forward to continuing to provide the community with quality library services and programs.

A Word Regarding Fees and Fines
Library customers borrow over 40,000 items per year from the Richard C. Sullivan Public Library. In striving to assure that the greatest variety of materials are available for Library users, we have found that fines are an effective encouragement for prompt return of materials. We also apply certain fees that encourage appropriate use of our materials so that once returned, the items may be borrowed by others without delay.
We understand that due to a wide variety of circumstances such as illness or other unanticipated demands in our personal lives, materials are sometimes returned late. However, we do not attempt to judge any individual's circumstances as more excusable than another's. The impact of late returns is the same in all cases regardless of the cause. We do not provide exceptions based on cause.
As custodians of both the collection and the public's trust, the Library is committed to fair and consistent application of our policies. Holding all users equally accountable for the use of the Library and any fees or fines incurred is part of meeting that public obligation.
The Library works to encourage our borrowers to avoid accruing fines and fees. We provide notices to help educate and inform borrowers regarding the use of their account.
How can I avoid fines?
We provide many opportunities for you to avoid the accrual of fines on your library account. However, please remember that materials borrowed from the Richard C. Sullivan Public Library may only be returned here. Please note that materials returned to the after-hours drop will be considered returned on the next date on which the Library is open.
The Library provides 3 ways for you to renew your eligible material:
- You may renew materials online by logging into your library card account.
- You may call to renew, at (954) 390-2195
- You may come to the Library in person
