Replacing Carpet, Upgrading Teen Computers, and Other Improvements Planned

JACKSONVILLE, Fla., Jan. 27, 2017 – The Jacksonville Public Library will suspend service at the Murray Hill Branch Library from Feb. 10 through Feb. 22 in order to replace the carpet throughout the branch and make other upgrades to computers and furniture.
