Due to the progression of Hurricane Ian, in accordance with Mayor Lenny Curry and the City of Jacksonville, all library locations will be closed as of noon Wednesday, September 28, 2022, and remain closed Thursday, Friday, and Saturday. Decisions to extend closures of some or all locations will be made as the storm progresses.
In libraries, classrooms, family rooms, and at bedtime around the world, every day print picture books take children on incredible journeys of discovery and bring people together. Whether it’s a new or beloved story, children begin to associate words with meaning and are introduced to beautiful artwork that they can hold in their lap. Picture Book Month is an international literacy initiative that celebrates the print picture book and its importance during the month of November.
