Our new Jacksonville Public Library App has arrived and we’re pretty excited to share it with you. The app takes ease of access to our materials and pushes it to the max. Find it in the Apple Store and the Google Play Store and start getting all the materials you love all in one place.

How To: E-Books, Audiobooks and More!

It’s 2019 and everyone wants instant access to materials at any hour! We get it—we do too! To accommodate the need for instant information and entertainment, JPL has awesome online resources that everyone in our community should be taking advantage of.

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.

Oh the places you'll go...in an hour?!

There are plenty of exciting reasons to visit the Main Library downtown, but we know that finding parking can sometimes be a problem - especially with kids. We’ve got your back.  While the library is always free, Monday through Friday you can also get one hour of free parking in the Duval St. Parking Garage when you visit Main.

Power UP

You’re never too old, or too young to learn new technology.

Become a 3D Printer Master

We have an exciting update for 2017: Starting this month we will be offering on demand 3D printer services! You may be excited at the thought of being able to print your very own designs without purchasing your own 3D printer. Or, you may be thinking this is cool, but why am I interested!? What can I make? You can make a ton of things. A simple Google search will pull up hundreds of designs.

Discover Features of the New Website Design

You asked for a more mobile and user friendly website and we answered. The Jacksonville Public Library has launched an improved website to better serve your needs. Besides the new mobile responsive design, the new site now looks like an actual website (imagine that)! Before, the website was definitely informational, but hard to use. We've kept the same great information and resources, but presented in a format that is easier to navigate and more pleasant to look at!

Some of the new features to better serve you are:
