(Wednesday, July 22, 2020) – Miami-Dade County will be providing free face masks at all 50 Miami-Dade Public Library System (MDPLS) locations beginning Thursday, July 23. This mask distribution initiative is aimed at helping to reduce the spread of COVID-19, ensure that residents in need of masks have easy access to obtain them, and ensure compliance with Miami-Dade County Amendment 1 to Emergency Order 20-20, which requires that all persons in Miami-Dade County wear a mask or other facial covering when in public spaces both indoors and outdoors. The public is reminded that not wearing a mask is now a civil offense punishable with fines of up to $100.
Those who need a face mask can stop by any MDPLS location entrance to request and pick up masks, which will be available for as long as supplies last. For a complete list of library locations and operating hours, visit www.mdpls.org/branches or call 305-375-2665.
Free face masks are available at the Sunny Isles Beach Library. You can pick them up during library hours outside of the Sunny Isles Beach Government Center west entrance (under the covered parking by the library book drop & screening area). These masks will be available during regular library hours of operation.
