What did Florida look like on a map in 1522?
Unless you’ve journeyed up to the fourth floor of our Main Library, you may not know about our extensive map collection. The Lewis Ansbacher Map Collection features over 240 antiquarian maps from all over the world.
Hello, I wanted to share a short message of introduction to let you know how excited I am to be joining the Jacksonville Public Library team. As you can imagine, my wife Carla and I have been pretty busy over the past month celebrating the holidays with family and prepping for our new life in North Florida. We found a place to live on the Southside, got our Florida driver’s licenses and car tags, and most importantly, went to our new home branch, Southeast Regional, to register for library cards. We are officially Jaxsons (or Jacksonvillians, if you prefer)!
