Miami-Dade considers bringing libraries to parks in a cost-saving move

“Miami-Dade commissioners on Monday endorsed bringing libraries into county park buildings in an effort to ease the budget crunch facing the library system. The commission’s Cultural Affairs and Recreation Committee endorsed asking voters in November to rewrite the county charter to exempt libraries from use restrictions at county parks. The proposal now moves to the full commission, but committee members said they weren’t eager to loosen restrictions on parks. “I’m very skeptical that if we open this up, others will take advantage of it,’’ Commissioner Jean Monestime said. “I don’t want to do anything that takes away from our parks space.” (via MiamiHerald.com)
