There's so much to fall in love with about this time of year! Whether it's spooky season, autumn festivals, candied and caramel apples, or the ever-popular Pumpkin Spice Latte (or Pumpkin Spice Iced Chia Latte): There's nothing quite like finding just the right book or a group of people to talk about it with! This October, join a Book Club! Not only will you get some great reading recommendations from fellow readers, but you might just bond with someone over a favorite fall treat (and maybe share a recipe or two).

Just in case your TBR pile isn't big enough: Jax Book Fest is back September 22-23 at the Main Library! Not only is this your chance to meet #1 New York Times bestselling authors Joe Hill and Angeline Boulley, but there will also be DOZENS of local authors set up throughout the Conference Level and first two floors. It's a book lover's dream! Plus, you can bring the kids to meet bestselling and award-winning author/illustrator Dan Santat - best known for The Adventures of Beekle: The Unimaginary Friend and Disney's The Replacements. 

In the meantime, don't close the book about our Library Book Clubs! We've got some great reading recommendations this month that you're going to want to check out!

And with all the money you save from those FREE books, that just means more money towards your next vacation (or stay-cation)!

Join a Library Book Club this May

Join a Book Club at Jacksonville Public Library

May is a really fun time for comic book fans. The first Saturday of the month is Free Comic Book Day (at participating comic book retailers). Over 2000 stores take part annually! Of course, you can check out comics for free any day at the Library (or download them instantly on your favorite device with Hoopla)! Plus, you can meet other comic fans at Willow Branch Library for ComiClub to talk about a wide variety of comics and graphic novels. In addition to superhero comics, they also discuss horror, slice-of-life, nonfiction, and other genres! Beyond the Panel, another graphic novel book club is coming soon to Pablo Creek Library!

Join a Book Club this April

Join a Book Club at Jacksonville Public Library

April is a big month for readers! Not only are April showers are the perfect excuse to cancel all your plans, stay in and read a great book, but it's also National Poetry Month! Plus, there's World Book Day on April 23! We're also partial to National Library Week (April 23 - 29). This year, the theme is "There's More to the Story" and libraries are full of them (and a lot of other very cool things). 

So, what do you say? Want to join us at the Library to talk about books?
