The Miamiâ€‘Dade Public Library System (MDPLS) and the Miamiâ€‘Dade County Internal Services Department are proud to announce the grand opening of the Northeast Dade – Aventura Public Library. The Library will be open to the public immediately after the ribbon cutting ceremony.Â The former Library was extensively damaged in 2005 by Hurricane Wilma, and as part of the Library Capital Expansion Plan, it has been redeveloped with a focus on green building principles. The County is expected to achieve LEED â€œGoldâ€ Certification and includes ecoâ€‘friendly construction and sustainable materials.
Library customers will be able to print from their wireless devices through the branch Libraryâ€™s public access to wireless printers. This wireless access will extend to the exterior of the Library so that customers can access the Internet while sitting in different areas including the exterior spaces. Additionally, the Library will provide a mix of desktop computers combining iMacs, Surface Pro3 tablets and gaming computers geared for teens. The facility has an extensive sound system throughout that can be configured to play different music, announcements and soundtracks to distinct areas of the Library including two interior courtyards.
The $15 million project was funded in collaboration with the Miamiâ€‘Dade Library Taxing District and the Building Better Communities Bond Program.Â The Northeast Dade – Aventura Libraryâ€™s new home has been carefully designed by AgustÃn Lugones from the ISD Design and Construction Services Division in collaboration with MDPLS to ensure the highest level of service possible to Miamiâ€‘Dade customers.Â @MDPLS @MayorGimenez
