A Gift For Our Deployed Military

FJPL’s Books for Deployed Military program sends books to First Coast men and women deployed from their home station. In order for this program to continually be successful, we need your help.


Send a deployed servicemember a box of books by emailing the following information to  



Rank, name, mailing address, and preferred genre of books if known


We send about 20 paperback books in a box to a recipient. Paperback books help with storage and deployed servicemembers can share! 

Thank you for helping us support our military!
