Discover Features of the New Website Design

You asked for a more mobile and user friendly website and we answered. The Jacksonville Public Library has launched an improved website to better serve your needs. Besides the new mobile responsive design, the new site now looks like an actual website (imagine that)! Before, the website was definitely informational, but hard to use. We've kept the same great information and resources, but presented in a format that is easier to navigate and more pleasant to look at!

Some of the new features to better serve you are:


The day is almost here! November 29, 2016 is a day set aside to help others through the gift of your time, donations, goods, or your voice. YOU can make a difference!

Unexpected Gifts

We’re always telling you just how much we appreciate you. We value your support, as customers, as readers, as general supporters for the library. Recently we got a little love back when Rita Offindani sent us some mementos all the way from Tenerife which is the largest of Spain’s Canary Islands! The box was filled with art. Each piece was so dynamic but don't just take our word for it, see for yourself!

What to Expect at the Young Adult Job Fair

With over a 1,000 eager job seekers coming through the library for the 2016 Young Adult Job Fair, it was a historic event and we can't for this year's Young Adult Job Fair happening this week on Tuesday, June 6th.

October Staff Picks

Each month we feature a series of books chosen by our fabulous staff. Once a week our literary mavens will be featured on our social media channels. At the end of every month we compile them for you right here; that way you won’t miss a single book! These choices are some of their favorite books and authors or reads they need to share with others. Find the selection from this month below, and if you want to see what our librarians have recommended in the past check out our blog!
