Join a Book Club

Have you been saying to yourself, "Irish I knew what book to read next..."? Well, you're in luck! Jacksonville Public Library has 15 book clubs, with meetings all across Jacksonville! It's true! No need to pinch yourself (unless you're not wearing green on March 17).

Sign up for our monthly Book Club email on the Library U enrollment page and never miss a notification! No four-leaf clovers or lucky charms required!

#Have you joined the Reading Challenge?

You may have heard about Jax Stacks, our year-round reading challenge for adults. But did you know it has its own book club?! The location changes every few months, allowing you to connect with fellow readers all across Jacksonville. There are 16 categories (you pick 12) and even cool prizes for completion! Each month, we'll discuss one or two of these categories.

You can also get monthly book recommendations on our blog or by email
