Kids and Teens: Library Academy

Library Academy with Jacksonville Public Library

Make your quality time learning time by engaging your kids in Library Academy! If you haven't yet, please sign up for our weekly Library Academy newsletters to get easy-to-use programs that you can use wherever you are. They each start with a great book, include tons of enriching activities and coincide with a virtual library program that are designed to encourage reading motivation and build literacy skills. Learning is fun when you bring the library home!

We also have a dedicated Facebook group for Library Academy that is the hub for Jacksonville Public Library's Youth Services department. In this group you will be able to connect with families in the community and library stafff.  You will also find video storytimes, STEM programs, educational resources and more! Be sure to follow along for reading, learning & fun!
