The Adventure Begins.

Welcome to Jacksonville Public Library's Main Library, where inspiration and education, creativity and utility have been melded into one spectacular location. We're glad you've come to visit. Within this brochure, you'll discover some of the highlights of this great facility created especially with you in mind.

Its more than just books publicity image

Designed by architect Robert A.M. Stern, the new library is almost three times the size of the Haydon Burns Main Library. The North Laura facility is 300,000 square feet with the capacity to hold one million books. A 600-space parking garage across from the library building on Duval Street makes the Main Library easily accessibly. State-of-the-art technology offers 250 public computers, satellite, and video conferencing capabilities with infrastructure to support future technologies. And that's only the beginning.

At Jacksonville Public Library, our mission is to provide outstanding library services, collections, programs, and facilities, which will expand and enrich your life.

Start Here. Go Anywhere.
