Libraries are not just about books!

Our libraries provide places for people to seek employment, participate in community meetings, access multimedia materials, and further the education and of our children. These are just a few of the important functions that our libraries serve.

Consider the following facts: 

  • Early literacy remains a problem in our community and the public libraries are a critical part of the solution.
  • Public libraries should be sufficiently funded so that their doors are open to the children of our community during weekdays and weekends.
  • Attracting businesses and jobs to Jacksonville requires that we pay attention to the health of our public libraries that support our overall educational system.
  • Businesses will not relocate to a city where its public libraries are shuttered and closed.
  • Libraries offer more than just books, but provide a range of services and materials for the entire population.
