Miami-Dade’s Main Library downsizing its space as part of budget cuts

“As part of its budget belt-tightening, Miami-Dade County will downsize the space used by the Main Library’s back offices, shrinking the facility’s footprint to save money on rent. The library system’s downtown Miami headquarters would be reduced in size by half, keeping the two floors currently open to the public and eliminating a third floor and a basement used for administration and storage. Mayor Carlos Gimenez’s office expects the change to have little effect on library users. But the planned move has stirred controversy among library supporters who fear historical documents and special collections long held at the county’s largest library may be lost in the shuffle.” (via Miami Herald)
