September 2014 is Library Card Sign-Up Month and legendary Marvel comic creator Stan Lee is serving as the Honorary Chair of the program for the American Library Association. His quote for the campaign: “The smartest card in my wallet? It’s a library card.” What's in your wallet?
Jacksonville Public Library is many things to many people: a repository of information in a variety of printed and digital formats, a center of the community and a showplace for art—yes, art. Our library locations, if you didn’t already know, showcase a wealth of art created by a variety of artists.
The Board of Library Trustees and the library administration appreciate Mayor Alvin Brown including the Jacksonville Public Library in his proposed budget, which he presented to the City Council July 14. In his remarks, the mayor publicly recognized our libraries as “vital educational institutions in the community—serving people of all ages, from all walks of life and from all across the city.”
