Thank you for doing your part to help save the Miami-Dade Libraries. During the early morning hours of 9/20/2013, the Miami-Dade Board of County Commissioners voted 11-2 which ordered the approval of the budget and upheld their decision on the Amendment to Item E, the full funding of the libraries by means of Carry-Over, Reserves and/or Contingencies.
Thank the citizens who supported this cause.
Thank the brave librarians who worked hard keep our libraries open.
Thank your commissioners for listening and for voting to save our libraries.
Thank you to the two graduate students who created this Facebook movement from thousands of miles away. They fought for this cause through social media while the librarians and citizens campaigned in person.
Support the Friends of the Library with their Ten by Ten challenge let’s make that happen!
Be sure to thank your commissioner for their vote! Now is the time to send out your appreciation for what they have done!
