Funds to buy children’s books would triple under new Miami-Dade library budget

 
Jeannie Sensale, teaching artist with the Florida Grand Opera, reads the collection of poems titled Carnival of the Animals by John Lithgow at the Kendale Lakes Branch Library in West Kendall in this March 2013 file photo.
