With this, I am sending you a copy of a letter I posted yesterday after the latest Miami Herald editorial.

Feel free to reproduce it.

Best regards,

Soren Triff


I am surprised by the Miami Herald editorial on libraries; it gives the readers just two choices (cutting budget or paying more taxes) while all over the country people are solving this problem in many other positive ways.


For instance, public libraries are freeing space by offering electronic books while getting rid of books that have never being used. This new space can reduce their rent or taxes; the new space can be shared by other renters offering services the community requests like coffee shops, tutor centers, or school supply shops.


Libraries can generate income by offering some services to the public like renting the new space for private meetings or renting equipment; they can work in mutually beneficial ways with small businesses like day care centers or health services. These spaces can even be combined with our US Postal Service.


Finally, public libraries are successfully working with community college libraries sharing space and other resources.


Libraries are the heart of a community that needs to be pumped to a contemporary beat, not an obsolete appendix that needs to be removed. But it is up to the community leaders to come up with solutions. As a community newspaper, the Herald should work diligently in providing fast and reliable information to the community about solutions other cities are implementing every day. And if no leaders step in, then the paper should be the community strongest advocate for this worthy cause.

Hi! I received a form letter to sign and send to my Commissioner. It is asking them to restore the budget for libraries. I would like to find it on your web site. Is it there?

The link to find your commissioner is broken. The main commission page has a “Who is my commissioner” function that only needs your address. http://www.miamidade.gov/commission/

Hello! I was wondering how well the petitioning outside the libraries have been going? Last Wednesday Elyse and I collected 3 pages of signatures at South Dade Regional. I plan on doing it again this Wednesday evening. However, the Calm FB page did not mention any other events going on. Thanks and you guys rock!

Thank you for posting a summary of Friday’s meeting via blog. Question about meeting which I attended via webcast.

Did I miss any discussion about potential library closings?

Thanks for posting the link to the survey. Makes it much easier to let people know how to get to the survey because It is not always easy to see on library website.

What does “host an event” include?
