Check It Out: Independent Library Funding

Should the Jacksonville Public Library system become funded independently from the City of Jacksonville?  That question is being discussed as a part of a new Community Works/JCCI study, Check It Out: Independent Library Funding.  The study is receiving funding support from Friends of the Jacksonville Public Library Inc., the Jacksonville Public Library Foundation, and JCCI donors.

The Florida Times-Union ran an editorial recently outlining the issue:  http://jacksonville.com/opinion/editorials/2012-03-07/story/jacksonville-public-library-looks-answers-future#ixzz1oS7fnscz

Community Works is inviting the public to join the study.  Meetings are every Friday through June 1 at 11:30 a.m. at JCCI.

To sign up to attend the upcoming Check It Out study meetings, call JCCI at 396-3052 or register for a meeting online!
