This week, the Miami-Dade Democratic Party steering committee unanimously passed a resolution urging Mayor Gimenez and our county commissioners to fully fund our public libraries by restoring the original proposed funding that would maintain services and operating hours.

RSVP here to attend the upcoming county commissioner meeting Tuesday, September 10th at 5 pm to express your support for Miami's public libraries.
