Miami-Dade Public Library


This is an exciting time for the Miami‑Dade Public Library System. During the past two years we have been focused on expanding our service hours for the public, investing additional funding into our print and digital collections, advancing our capital plan to renovate existing libraries and improve building infrastructure, updating our technology to provide for faster internet access and new hardware and software for our customers, and developing new innovative partnerships and services that promote learning, literacy, 21st century skills, and the importance of information and knowledge.

Moving forward, we will continue to focus on all of the above, but also on exploring new technologies that facilitate ease of access to information for our customers, ensuring that library spaces remain important destinations for community engagement and free exchange of ideas, and continuously equipping our staff with the skills and training to meet the ever‑changing needs of our customers.

We invite you to visit any of our 50 locations in person, or to access the wide range of eBooks, audio books, research and learning materials, music, and videos that are available through this website.
