This Giving Tuesday, support your library!

The Jacksonville Public Library Foundation invites you to give to your public library system.

Help us continue to provide books, children’s programming, adult education and more to the Greater Jacksonville area.

This year, the Foundation is making Giving Tuesday a little sweeter (and spookier).

The first four people who donate $10 or more on Giving Tuesday will win two tickets to our meet-and-greet with bestselling Goosebumps author R.L. Stine on Friday, Feb. 22, 2019!

How to win? Visit on Tuesday, Nov. 27, 2018, select your donation level, and give.

You can also support the Jacksonville Public Library while you finish your holiday shopping online. Amazon will donate a portion of your purchase to the library when you select the Jacksonville Public Library Foundation as your Amazon Smile charity.

Here’s how to set up your Amazon account so the library benefits from your purchases:

  1. Log on to with your usual Amazon username and password.
  2. Select Jacksonville Public Library Foundation as your charity.
  3. Shop away!
  4. Amazon will do the donating—not just during the holidays, but year-round. Every dollar they hand over to the Foundation matters to our incredible library system.

In advance, we thank you for making sure that our valuable library services and programs continue well into 2019 and beyond. Happy holidays from our family to yours!
