 Brockway Memorial Library

  

Brockway Memorial Library first opened its doors in 1949 with a collection of several thousand books from the personal library of its namesake, George A. Brockway.  Often mistaken for a home, complete with sitting rooms and fireplaces, the building has only ever served as a Library. While it has grown over the years, it retains it's warmth, both in ambiance and through the personal attention patrons receive when they visit. 

 

 

Today the Library offers more than 70,000 new and classic titles, movie rentals, newspapers, 100+ digital and print magazines, and thousands of eBooks and eAudios through OverDrive.  Brockway also participates in Florida's state-wide Interlibrary Loan System, giving our members access to a vast collection of standard and rare titles found in libraries throughout the state.

 

 

The Library's Adult and Youth Services Departments proudly offer a variety of monthly programs and special events for children and adults that are culturally enriching and that are intended to inspire all ages to develop a love of reading and the arts.  Please click on the "Programs" link to see a list of current offerings and upcoming events.

About the exhibit

The Black History of Miami Shores exhibit will explore our community’s past at pivotal points in history. We will examine the role of racial discrimination and Black people’s contributions to Miami Shores’ development as a residential community. Using contemporaneous accounts, newspaper clippings and public records, we will put Miami Shores history in the context of national and international events as well as the happenings in surrounding areas. The exhibit will take us right up to the present with quotes and testimony from people who live, learn, play and work in and around our village.

The Black History of Miami Shores exhibit will be on display at Brockway Memorial Library, 10021 NE 2nd Ave in Miami Shores from February 7th - 28th, 2020 except February 15th when it will be at the Unity360 Community Dialogue workshop.

 

 

Brockway Memorial Library is committed to a safe and fun-filled environment free from harassment, intimidation or bullying for all of our participants and staff regardless of race, color, ethnicity, religion, disability, age or sexual orientation. We are working very hard in making the Library facilities a Bully Free Zone! We encourage our patrons and participants to report any type of bullying they may experience, hear or see occurring in our Library.
