World’s First Cybrarium Now Open in Homestead

Cybrarium Ribbon Cutting

Virtual reality, 3D printing, children’s theater, and a brand new collection of library books – these are just some of the exciting offerings at the world’s first Cybrarium now open at 80 West Mowry Drive, Homestead, Florida 33030.  The Cybrarium is the City of Homestead’s much-anticipated high-tech library that marries traditional library services with advanced technology and innovative programming.

A Ribbon Cutting Ceremony for the Cybrarium took place on Thursday, March 18, 2021, featuring Homestead’s Mayor and City Council, and culminating with the reading of a first-edition children’s book inspired by the Cybrarium.

Residents of Miami Dade County are encouraged to visit www.cybrarium.org now to apply for their free Cybrarium Card, reserve items for opening day, and begin accessing the digital collection and other online resources.  With the opening of the Cybrarium, the existing Homestead Branch Library at 700 N. Homestead Blvd. is now closed to the public.    The City of Homestead and the Miami-Dade Public Library System (MDPLS) will continue their long-standing partnership in delivering public library services throughout Miami-Dade County.    Homestead residents will be able to continue accessing services and materials at other MDPLS branches free of charge and Miami-Dade County residents, by applying for a Cybrarium card, will also have access to the Cybrarium thanks to a reciprocity agreement between MDPLS and the City. 

The Cybrarium is part of an overall vision to revitalize Downtown Homestead.  Other completed projects include the City Hall, Police Headquarters, Seminole Theatre, and Homestead Station transit and entertainment center.  The expansion of the City’s Losner Park is also currently underway.  Learn more at www.discoverdowntownhomestead.com
