#About JaxKids Book Club

The JaxKids Book Club (JKBC) was established in 2005. It provides access to books and promotes literacy and a love of reading to all children throughout Duval County. The JaxKids Book Club has everything kids and their families need to make learning and reading fun.

#Get Your FREE Books

Backpacks are distributed to all Duval County VPK students (public and private) automatically. If a child doesn’t receive a backpack through a VPK, they may get one at any Jacksonville Public Library location, while supplies last.

#Find More Storytimes

You want your child to have all the tools they need to start school. Here’s the toolbox! We start with a story that your child will love, and add music, get everyone up and moving and then we sprinkle in other fun to make it all stick. We’re saving a spot for you!
