Where: NSU's Alvin Sherman Library

In celebration of National Library Card Sign-Up Month, NSU's Alvin Sherman Library will host a "Take a Bite Out of the Library" fall kickoff bash.
This FREE fun-filled afternoon will give participants the chance to:
* Meet Elmo and Princess Reads-A-Lot from 1-2 p.m.
* Groove at Mr. Brian and the Boppets' Rock and Roll puppet show at 2 p.m.
* Get help from NSU Cheerleaders and mascot Razor to sign up for library cards from 1-3 p.m.
* Win special prizes such as tickets to the Broward Center for Performing Arts' Family Fun Series and the Sesame Street Live Elmo's Green Thumb show.
While at the bash, don't forget to sign up for Sharkey's Reading Club, which lets participants set reading goals and collect a new prize each month after reaching their target. Any child can join the club with an Alvin Sherman Library card.
As a special treat, those curious about their roots can also visit the Ancestors Roadshow table from 11 a.m.-3 p.m. for a free genealogy consultation to learn how to find out about your family's tree.
After the kickoff bash, teens are also invited to the "Get Carded" Back-to-School Dance from 7:30-10:30 p.m. Show your Alvin Sherman Library card or completed application to get into the party, for a night of dancing to hot DJ mixes and hanging with friends.
