Library Usage Survey
Thank you very much for supporting the Richard C. Sullivan Public Library of Wilton Manors. Our library is your library and it is for everyone!
This past year we welcomed over 26,000 visitors to our Library. Some used the Library for traditional services including: obtaining a book, movie or music; reading; using a computer; doing research; or completing homework. Others attended a variety of children’s, teen, adult, or family programs or attended a lecture. Some using our online resources learned a new skill, looked for work, or listened to a concert. The list goes on and on.
Our Library is transforming lives every single day. Library access is changing with digital library usage growing rapidly. Accessible 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days per year, the Library’s website in 2018 had almost 34,000 visits. Downloads of eBooks, audiobooks, and magazines surpassed 1300, more than 3 terabytes of data was transferred over our WiFi network by an average of 33 users per day. Whether seeking accurate information, employment opportunities, applying for college, researching health or medical data, exploring family history, studying for exams, or learning a foreign language, the Library’s virtual presence has the resources to guide you through your journey.
Your Library will continue to change with the times. While we will always provide traditional collections and services, as Library Director I believe we have a responsibility to be flexible and change to meet the ever-changing needs of our community. Libraries are at the center of our society and, in many instances, they are the heart of the neighborhood. And we want to connect with YOU!
I am proud to lead this great institution which has been providing free access to materials, resources, and services for the residents of Wilton Manors for more than 60 years. Working with an extremely talented staff, dedicated volunteers, our elected officials, and supportive stakeholders has been an honor.
My sincerest thanks to each and every one of you. Your comments and suggestions are always welcome!

A Word Regarding Fees
Library customers borrow over 36,000 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 fees 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 incurred is part of meeting that public obligation.
The Library works to encourage our borrowers to avoid accruing fees. We provide notices to help educate and inform borrowers regarding the use of their account.
How can you avoid fees? We provide many opportunities for you to avoid the accrual of fees 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
