    16. 16. Losing Libraries (July 18, 2013 ) Let’s get to know a little more about these 22 branch libraries slated for closure: Model City Branch Library has an art display of museum quality African textiles and African sculpture, and special collections for adults and children on African-American history, culture and literature. Model City serves African-American, Haitian and Hispanic populations. Lemon City Branch Library is located in “Little Haiti” and Little River Branch Library is located in the heart of the Haitian community. Hialeah Gardens Branch Library serves a largely Hispanic community. Many libraries offer special programs tailored to their communities such as Spanish language computer classes at Hialeah Gardens Branch Library, Concord Branch Library, and Palm Springs North Branch Library. Little River Branch Library offers computer literacy classes for seniors. The libraries offer places for kids to study, learn, and play. Culmer/Overtown Branch Library was Miami-Dade’s first child-focused branch, with 60% of the collection devoted to items for kids. These 22 libraries also offer a local “safety net” of free access to computers, wifi and Internet for local communities. For example, 8 computer terminals and 6 laptops are available at Sunset Branch Library; 21 computers at Fairlawn Branch Library; more than 25 computers athttp://imaplibraries.wordpress.com/2013/07/18/losing-libraries/
    17. 17. Who Loses When Libraries Close? (July 18, 2013 ) For families with children, libraries offer an alternative to the streets as a safe space in the local community for kids and teens to play, read, and participate in learning activities. Among the 22 Miami Dade communities at risk of closing libraries, eight in particular have more than 40% of households as families with children: Doral, Country Walk, West Kendall, Hialeah Gardens, Lakes of the Meadow, Golden Glades, Opa-Locka, and Model City. Among renters living in the 22 communities, at least 14% or more did not own a car for the library market areas of South Shore, Model City, Civic Center, Culmer/Overtown, Little River and Lemon City. Among the communities slated to lose their libraries, two that had per capita average incomes close to the federal poverty line for individuals ($11,490) were: Model City and Opa-Locka. The libraries with over 50% Black populations in their local market areas were Golden Glades,Model City, Opa-Locka and Little River. The libraries in market areas with over 50% Hispanic populations were Hialeah Gardens, Concord, Fairlawn, Lakes of the Meadow, Shenandoah, Civic Center, Sunset, Doral, West Kendall, Country Walk,Tamiami, Virrick Park , North Shore and Culmer/Overtown. http://imaplibraries.wordpress.com/2013/07/24/who-loses-when-libraries-close/
    18. 18. How Do You Choose Which Libraries to Close? (July 18, 2013 ) In this post, we analyze the socioeconomic and demographic characteristics of the people who are likely being served by each of the 22 Miami Dade County library branches that were recently chosen to be closed, and we compare their characteristics with the branches that are to remain open. 1) The closed libraries serve a higher percentage of Hispanics than the libraries that will remain open. 2) Closed libraries have a lower percentage of English-speaking households and a higher percentage of Spanish-speaking households 3) Closed libraries have a higher percentage of households speaking an Indo- European language with a higher degree of linguistic isolation than libraries that will remain open. 4) The average median income, average per capita income, and average housing value for the Census block groups within the library’s market area is noticeably lower for those libraries that will be closed as compared to the libraries that will remain open. http://imaplibraries.wordpress.com/2013/07/26/how-do-you-choose-which-libraries-to-close/
    19. 19. Are Library Closures Fair to Everyone? (July 30, 2013) Our study also noted that libraries to be closed serve areas with a higher percentage of households of other races with more linguistic isolation than the libraries remaining open. Over 10% of the households in the library market areas of Little River and Lemon City are linguistically isolated, the highest percentages in Miami Dade County. Another way to look at equity and fairness is to examine the library usage statistics at the various branches 1) the to-be-closed Model City branch serves one of the poorest areas of the county, it is estimated to have one of the ten highest branch usages of PCs (.488 vs. .356 county-wide) as well as door count among all the branches (2.273 vs. 1.478 county-wide). 2) 2) the to-be-closed Lemon City branch has one of the three highest per person usage of any Miami-Dade county library based upon the gravity model (3.187), with only the Main Library and the Miami Beach Regional Library being higher (10.988 and 3.813, respectively) The Lemon City branch also serves a high percentage of renters with limited transportation options as well as high numbers of social security recipients http://imaplibraries.wordpress.com/2013/07/30/are-library-closures-fair-to-everyone/
