Today, the 5,000 square-foot library at 17641 Old Cutler Road, Palmetto Bay got it's second ribbon cutting as Dade County celebrated its latest library branch opening.
The library first opened with a Village-only celebration in mid-October. Since then, Palmetto Bay residents (including my kids) have enjoyed its services. The library is attached to the looped Old Cutler Road bike path, which makes it easy for villagers to access the library on bike or by foot.
I tried to be there for the actual ribbon-cutting today, but had to be at an appointment before it started. Regardless, the excitement and pride was palpable when library staff from around the county gathered to prepare for the dignitaries.
The library offers a vast collection of books, computers, magazines, CDs and DVDs, as well as classes on financial assistance, job-hunting and resume-writing. Adult, teen, and children programs are also available.
Not to be forgotten, the innovative building located at Ludovici Park also sports an amphitheater and community room. Today they dedicated those facilites as the Edward & Arlene Feller Community Room & Amphitheater.
As always, the bright and friendly library awaits residents Monday, Thursday, Friday, and Saturday from 9:30 a.m. - 6 p.m.; Tuesday and Wednesday from 11:30 a.m. - 8 p.m. It is closed on Sunday. For more information, call (305) 232-1771.
I think this library truck says it all...
