Miami-Dade Public Library System supports "Read to Learn Books for Free"
– The Miami-Dade Public Library System will have collection bins at 8 of its branches –
(Miami, FL – November 4, 2015) The Miami-Dade Public Library System is proud to announce its participation in the “Read to Learn Books for Free” program. The program encourages children and parents to read together by placing bookshelves full of free books in locations throughout Miami‑Dade County where they often visit together including clinics and doctors’ offices, the Juvenile Justice Center and Community Service Centers. This program is a partnership of The Children’s Trust and The Center for Writing and Literature at Miami Dade College.
With 40 locations in their first year they are hoping to grow. The program has created vibrant signage inviting children to take a book and keep it. They are committed to restocking the bookshelves regularly, keeping them tidy and full of wonderful books.
The Miami-Dade Public Library System is supporting the program by having book collection bins at the following locations: Coral Gables Branch Library, Pinecrest Branch Library, Kendall Branch Library, West Dade Regional Library, West End Regional Library and the Miami Lakes Branch Library. Patrons and visitors can donate and drop off books in the collection bins at any of these locations.
