The Jax Makerspace Gallery has a new photography exhibit called Jacksonville: A Tale of My City. Jenna and Hurley talk with three of the photographers, Malcolm Jackson, Bob Self, and Cheryl McCain, during the opening reception at Downtown Art Walk. The three photographers tell us about their work and how they went about capturing the true identity of their favorite Jacksonville neighborhoods and monuments.

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!

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.
