Help the Libraries…Volunteer

FJPL needs volunteers to help sort books, to staff our bookstore and to help with our Book Warehouse Sales.

Come shop the Bookstore and find out about volunteering.

Directions to the bookstore and the hours of operation can be found here.

FJPL Bookstore Update

Thank you for asking about the Friends of the Jacksonville Public Library (FJPL) Bookstore.  The store at the University Park Branch (UPK) is open three days a week, Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday, from 9:00am to 12:00pm.

I am sorry but we are no longer open from 4:00pm to 7:00pm on Tuesday.  In early November we became aware that we had neither the customer traffic nor volunteers to continue opening the bookstore during this time frame.

In effort to have our store open at least 12 hours each week, we will be extending the shopping hours on Saturdays.  Effective, Saturday, February 7, 2015 our Saturday hours will be 9:00am to 3:00pm.  I hope that this extended time will allow all of our customers and their family to fit a visit to our store into their schedule.

 FJPL Book Sale Update

The dates for our next Book Sale has not been established yet.  I encourage you to sign up for our email notifications here, this will allow you to keep up with the sales.

FJPL has also recently launched a Facebook page, so if you are a Facebook user please like us.

Thank you again for your support of the Jacksonville Public Library.

Volunteers are the reason

The Friends of Jacksonville Public Library (FJPL) was established June 14, 1955 and is a successful non-profit. Successful because FJPL has given, and continues to give, money to the library every year. We are able to do that because of our volunteers.  Simply put, no volunteers, no money to the library.  They are the reason for FJPL’s success. To become a volunteer with this organization that is making a difference, send an email to me stating you want to volunteer with FJPL.
