JPL University: A Great Education, No Tuition!

“Libraries will get you through times of no money better than money will get you through times of no libraries.”  – Anne Herbert

The economy may be unsteady, but the library is constant. When times are hard, but you still need to keep moving forward, that’s when libraries offer the most.

You can’t afford or don’t want to pay for cable? No problem, check out DVDs of your favorite TV shows or movies. Don’t have the internet? We have free Wi-Fi.  You dropped out of high school and now want your GED or high school diploma? Our Adult Learning Center offers GED preparation and testing, as well as scholarships for an accredited online high school.


Been downsized and you want to improve your job skills to become more marketable in the workforce? We can definitely help with that.

We want the Jacksonville Public Library to be your first thought when you have a need, especially if finances are a factor or you want to save money.
