10 x 10 Challenge
Here’s an easy challenge to consider. It does not involve putting a bucket of ice on your head or breaking your bank account. Simply give $10 to Friends of the Miami-Dade Public Library to help us reach our fundraising goal of raising $10,000 by Oct. 10 to help support our libraries. Donate today!

On September 18, Miami-Dade County Commissioners passed a $54 million library budget, putting an end to four years of consecutive budget reductions and marking a turnaround for our libraries. The budget closes a $30 million budget shortfall and includes funding increases for new materials, programs, technology upgrades and expanded operating hours at some locations. It does not restore all of the programs and services lost through the previous cutbacks but it is an excellent beginning to regrowth. It is important that we keep up the momentum and that you continue to make your voices heard. Please be sure to become a Friends’ Member today.
