Mission Statement

 Youth Services Department of the Brockway Memorial Library


Brockway Memorial Library's Youth Services Department provides for the educational, recreational, and informational needs of the youth of the Miami Shores Community. This is accomplished through collection development and programming geared toward children and youth from birth through high school, respectively. The goal of the BML Youth Services Department is to foster an inviting environment that promotes literacy for youngsters and their caregivers. We strive to nurture and empower all youth by inspiring a love of reading, sparking curiosity and joy of discovery, and by providing access to information, knowledge, and diverse ideas.
