Update on Miami-Dade Public Libraries

Miami-Dade County will not be laying off any employees or reducing hours of operation at the Miami-Dade Public Libraries after the decision was made to use the libraries' $7.8 million reserve fund. This is not a long-term solution, however - next year the libraries will once again face a budget shortfall.

    The pictures make me remember that being told "be safe" aren't words of wisdom. They are words of fear that warn you to turn your back on what is right.
