Miami-Dade Libraries at Risk?
Miami-Dade Mayor Carlos Gimenez is proposing to close 4 libraries and lay off 192 library workers in order to avoid raising property taxes. This is considered an improvement from the original proposal seeking to close almost half of the county’s libraries and eliminate 251 positions. Does balancing the budget shortchange Miami-Dade's public libraries?
