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. Click here to visit the study blog.
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.
