The Miami-Dade Public Library System has been a vital part of our county for over five decades. Reflecting on 50 years of serving the community, the county would love to hear and share your library stories.
“I have been going to the library for 27 years. The staff are always polite, helpful and all are very nice. When I pick up my books, I'm greeted with a smile. And the books on the cart that are for sale are great! I always buy a few for my grandsons. They are in good condition and well priced. Thank you to everyone at the library for everything you do.”
~ Patti, North Shore Branch Library patron
