What Do You Love About the Library?

Library Lovers Month

It's February and there's always a lot of love in the air and so much to go around! But we're not just talking about romantic love - the kind we celebrate on Valentine's Day. Did you know that February 14 is also Library Lovers' Day?! Not only that, but the entire month of February also just happens to be National Library Lover’s Month! So, it's the perfect time to show your love for your favorite Jacksonville Public Library branch. You can even give us a Valentine's card if you want. And in turn, we'll show you how much we love our customers by showing you everything the library has to offer. There are so many ways to celebrate!

Discover the Work of River Dana

From here to Jacksonville exhibit image by River Dana

River Dana was born in an Alaskan log cabin that contained no running water nor electricity. Raised in poverty and forced to grow up in social isolation by religiously fanatic parents, she was constantly on the move, and books were her only escape. She devoured anything she could get her hands on, imagining the faraway places she knew she would see some day. She is no stranger to Jacksonville, moving here for the third time in 2018.

Her photography exhibition, From Here To Jacksonville, will be on display at the Main Library. View her work on the second floor and third floor Betty Francis galleries from August 14 to September 24, 2019.
