Words have power—read a banned book! Each September, the Jacksonville Public Library celebrates First Amendment rights during Banned Books Week. At this time, we encourage readers to pick up books that have been banned or challenged in the United States.
Hispanic Heritage Month begins on September 15! Read along with us to celebrate the generations of Hispanic Americans who have contributed greatly to our nation. Put these titles on hold today and read them aloud to your family during Hispanic heritage Month!
Each month we feature a series of books chosen by our fabulous staff, and this month our patrons too! At the end of every month we compile them for you right here; that way you won’t miss a single book! These choices are favored books and authors, or reads that just need to be shared with others. Pick up your next summer read and share it with us!
