This report summarizes the "Public Library Facilities Master Plan for Metropolitan Dade County," prepared by Nelson Associates (ED 027 053). Some of the proposals of the master plan which are summarized in this report state that: (1) by 1985, a fourth and possibly a fifth regional library ought to be built to serve Dade County's anticipated population of 2 million, (2) no person in Dade County should be more than 15 minutes drive from a regional library, (3) the replacement and upgrading of local branch libraries will be completed, (4) books not available at local branch libraries will be available from other libraries or from the Main library, (5) all libraries in Dade County will be easily accessible from the county's expanded transit and expressway transportation system, and (6) 1985 building needs will total $14.3 million. In addition to a summary of the proposals of the master plan, the details of plan implementation are discussed. (Author/JB)
