Jeremy Yates (he/they) is a maker, visual storyteller, D&D player and lifelong Disney fan. He is also one of two Marketing Specialists with the Community Relations and Marketing department at Jacksonville Public Library. When not at work, they enjoy spending time in a galaxy far, far away through Star Wars audiobooks, movies and TV shows. Or you’ll find them binge-watching other fantasy and sci-fi shows, playing Pokémon Go or just spending quality time with his equally-geeky partner Andrew and their extremely food-motivated Border Collie, Watson.

Book Recommendations for Rings of Power Fans

Books to read if you love Lord of the Rings the Rings of Power

If you’re a fan of J. R. R. Tolkien’s classic books and (especially) Peter Jackson’s epic fantasy-adventure film trilogy The Lord of the Rings (from the early 2000s), you might just be watching the first two episodes of Amazon Prime Video’s newly released The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power this weekend. But with a weekly release schedule, you might be looking for fantasy book recommendations between premiere dates. The Library has you covered!

The Memory Lab opens September 7

Richard T. Marchionda watches footage of a 1964 football game. Text reads: Memory Lab.

Do you have boxes of old photographs? Home movies on VHS? Mixed tapes on cassette? Have you ever wanted to convert them to an easily stored and sharable digital format? How does "for FREE" sound?

Book Recommendations for She-Hulk Fans

Books to read if you like She-Hulk

While Marvel’s newest Disney+ series, She-Hulk: Attorney at Law, is faithful to its comic-book counterpart in many ways, it’s also a departure from “the formula.” Jennifer Walters, a.k.a. She-Hulk, is not like other Marvel heroes. Unlike her cousin, Bruce Banner, she doesn’t lose herself to the “monster.” And unlike fellow lawyer (and vigilante) Matt Murdock/Daredevil, she doesn’t have a secret identity. But maybe a female-led comedy/legal drama (albeit with a healthy dose of action and adventure) is just what the Doctor (Strange) ordered?

If you’re new to the Jade Giantess or just find yourself wanting more than an episode a week, the Library has you covered.

Ways to Celebrate Book Lovers Day

August ninth is National Book Lovers Day
