CALM, Community Advocates for Libraries in Miami: A Political Action Committee and open group for all supporters of the Miami-Dade Public Library System.
Our Mission is to be the collective proponents of full-funding for our Libraries so that they may be maintained and improved upon for the years to come.
49 library branches plus 2 bookmobiles serve the entire Miami-Dade County, and welcome all visitors through their doors--including over 7 million in 2012.
It is the belief of CALM that the Miami-Dade Public Libraries are not simply a hub of information and technology; our Libraries are the heart of our community, and our staff are the heart within them. Our Libraries provide access to culture, recreation, education, and encourage lifelong learning in all people.
