Description: The brand-new Main Library for Duval County in Jacksonville, FL! Located in Downtown Jacksonville across from Hemming Park, City Hall, and the Jacksonville Museum of Contemporary Art, this library features four floors of awesomeness. It has separate sections for children and teens, as well as a special Geneaology Department, the Florida Collection, and the Ansbacher Map Room. It also now includes the "Book-a-Librarian" service, where you can make an appointment with a specialist for an introduction into using the library's tools and resources, or just have them help you with a particular research project.
