What is a ‘jacksonvillians’ library?
The Jacksonville Public Library has released a collection of its collection of books, which it describes as a “jacksonland community library.”
According to the library, the collection includes books about “the history, culture, language, and community of the Jacksonville, Florida, area” and is part of the library’s “librarianship program.”
It’s unclear if this is the same library that offers a library card, a book collection, or other similar services.
In addition, the library did not say what specific titles it offered for purchase.
A library spokesperson told The Huffington Post the collection is being curated by a library staff member.
The library has previously offered a card to members of the public to borrow.
In a statement, the Library of Congress described the collection as a community library and said it is “not affiliated with any particular state or local government.”
“We appreciate the community’s support of the Libraries mission, and are committed to providing this valuable resource to those who need it,” the statement read.
The Jacksonville Public library is a city-owned public library and serves as the “largest community library in the world,” according to its website.
It is part-owned by the city of Jacksonville and part-managed by the Jacksonville Library Association.
The city has been a focus of a lawsuit filed by the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) against the Jacksonville Public Libraries last year.
