'Save our Libraries' rally planned
Budget cuts coming to Miami-Dade County libraries
MIAMI – Those against the proposed budget cuts to Miami-Dade County's libraries are holding a "Save our Libraries" rally on Saturday.
The rally will be held at Concord Library, located at Southwest 40th Street and 112th Avenue, at 2 p.m.
With cuts coming to the library system after Miami-Dade commissioners passed a flat tax rate, 22 branches will close and 251 workers will be laid off.
"People have said that the age of the library is probably ending," Miami-Dade County Mayor Carlos Gimenez said last week.
Those against the cuts to the libraries also started a Change.org petition.
