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!

Support Your Library

Whether your passion is books, literacy, children's programs, or technology the Foundation can help you fund your passion. Your support helps pay for enhanced programs, services, equipment, and collections at all of the Jacksonville Public Library (JPL) branches.
