Card Me: National Library Card Sign-Up Month

It’s National Library Card Sign-Up Month and we’re celebrating with a little contest that explores some of the great services you enjoy for FREE with your Jax Library card!  You already know the library offers all your favorite book titles, but we really aren’t joking when we say that your library card allows you to “Start Here. Go Anywhere.” In the spirit of celebrating library card services we’re having a contest.

#JaxBookFace

Last year we started a #JaxBookFace contest, and it's been a lot of fun to see some of your creative entries! We're pretty much in love with your book faces so keep them coming. You could be our next winner!

Let Us See Those Book Faces!

At the Library there’s one thing that brings us together – our love of books! Being a bastion of books, we are often offered Advanced Readers Copies of upcoming best sellers. While we love those advanced reads, we know that you do too! We wanted to pass on that perk to you, but how would we tell who the biggest book nerd is?!
