Did you know?
14 Libraries of the Miami Dade Public Library System are facing closure come October. Another 8 will become “Technology Homework Centers” and will be open for only 20 hours during the week — operated by part-time staff who are not librarians or trained staff. 251 library staff will be laid off, despite years of service and dedication.
If you’re asking yourself, “Why didn’t anyone tell me?” or “How did I not know?” it is because we, the librarians & library staff, cannot tell you.
County employees cannot speak on issues that involve county matters to the press or the public while on the job. This is because their words can be misconstrued as being the official voice of the County.
