FREE ADMISSION TO MOCA JACKSONVILLE ON THE LAST FRIDAY EACH MONTH WITH LIBRARY CARD
Jacksonville Public Library and MOCA Jacksonville Offering Duval Residents More Access to Art and Literature
JACKSONVILLE, Fla., Feb. 24, 2021 – MOCA Jacksonville is generously giving Jacksonville Public Library card holders free admission to the museum the last Friday of each month to increase literacy in Duval County by expanding access to art. All Jacksonville Library card holders—including residents, educators, students, military and those who hold active non-resident cards—are eligible for this benefit.
"This is a wonderful gift MOCA is giving to Jacksonville," said Tim Rogers, Library Director for Jacksonville Public Library. "The visual arts are vital to building literacy. Access to MOCA's exhibitions including Project Atrium are the perfect complement to the content people access at the Library."
This benefit was created as a product of Jacksonville Public Library + MOCA Art & Conversations, a joint project between the two institutions featuring author talks, film screenings and social forums to explore and expand the important topics trending among Jacksonville citizens.
Library card holders simply need to show their Jacksonville Public Library card* on the last Friday each month at MOCA Jacksonville's museum (333 Laura St. N. downtown next to the Main Library) to be admitted for free.
Visit the Library's blog for more information or call (904) 255-BOOK (2665) with questions.
*Jacksonville Public Library customers may show their physical card, key tag or virtual card available through the Library's mobile app. Duval County Public School students can give their student ID number, which serves as their Library card.
