Not Done Yet! Action Needed!
The County Commission voted in July in favor of a slight tax increase enabling libraries to operate with roughly the same $52 million budget as the current year. In order to keep this partial victory intact and begin to rebuild a newly envisioned library system, it is imperative that we redouble our efforts to hold the line against reductions through the September Budget hearings when Commissioners have the option to lower the preliminary tax rate passed in July.

A Message of Appreciation
from the Friends of the Library
The Friends of the Miami-Dade Public Library would like to thank Commissioners Bruno Barreiro, Lynda Bell, Audrey Edmonson, Sally Heyman, Barbara Jordan, Jean Monestime, Dennis Moss, and Xavier Suarez for their support of this year’s approximately $52 million library budget which holds the line on further service cuts and layoffs. We are indebted to their support not only this year, but for their historical support of the library as well.
President, Friends of the Library
