June is GLBT Book Month™
Starting in 2015, the American Library Association will mark GLBT Book Month™, a nationwide celebration of the authors and writings that reflect the lives and experiences of the gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender community. The Readers’ Advisory of the Jacksonville Public Library has compiled a list of books and DVDs for children, teens and adults available at your library.
Lists of bestsellers and other popular items available for holds via JAXCAT. Lists include the Bestsellers from the NY Times, Publishers Weekly, and USA Today. Award-winning lists include the Hugo, Newbery, and Pulitzer Prizes. Updated weekly.
You'll also find lists of the most popular items that the library has. Here's a sample:
Pathfinders are reading guides that serve as a map and reference to bibliographic research on a specific topic. They are constructed by librarians and library staff in order to assist the public in selecting and reviewing research or items of similar interest.
A non-partisan, non-profit organization whose mission is: To promote understanding of the world and its people and to engage citizens of Northeast Florida in becoming better informed participants in the global community.
