In honor of National Library Week 2015, Miami‑Dade Public Libraries will be hosting a series of readings at numerous Library branches by civic and community leaders where they will become a storyteller for a day and read to children.
Check out these Special Programs in Celebration of National Library Week:
- Professional storyteller Carrie Sue Ayvar at South Shore Branch Library on April 9 at 10:30 a.m.

First celebrated in 1958 to promote library use and support as well as to celebrate libraries and librarians. This year’s Miami‑Dade Public Library System’s theme is “Behind every great community is a great library.” Libraries all over the country have planned a wide variety of activities for this week, but one staple – at least for the public library – is storytime.

Through its 50 locations, bookmobiles, special services, website (www.mdpls.org) and MDPLS iLibrary app, the library proudly serves more than 7 million annual visitors. In the more than 40 years of serving the community, the MDPLS continues to experience tremendous change and growth, evolving with the technological needs and requirements of its diverse community.
