Miami Lakes, FL - The Town of Miami Lakes recently kicked off its new E-Reader Lending Program with a workshop on May 27 at the Miami Lakes Branch Library. During the event, the Town announced the start of the new Program and residents were able to borrow the e-readers for the first time. The Miami Lakes Branch Library also presented a workshop on how to download free e-books using the Miami Dade Public Library System’s website and library card.

The new Program, introduced by Vice Mayor Manny Cid, encourages reading through the use of technology and provides an opportunity for Miami Lakes residents to borrow an e-reader for free for a 3 week period of time and download free e-books.
