Miami-Dade reduces number of libraries on chopping block to four

“Miami-Dade Mayor Carlos Gimenez, who last month warned that 22 of the county‚Äôs 49 public libraries could be shut down this fall due to deep budget cuts, announced Thursday that his administration now expects to shutter only four. The dramatic reduction, while welcome news to library supporters who have campaigned to keep the facilities open, still comes with plenty of pain. Libraries across the board will likely shorten their hours and be staffed by fewer librarians.” (via MiamiHerald.com)
