Holiday Fun at the Libraries

The Jacksonville Public Library (JPL) has a lot of fun activities planned over the
winter holidays. From holiday crafts and visits from Santa Claus to puppet shows
and movies, there are opportunities for children of all ages. These activities are
scheduled for December 19 through January 3. Additionally, young readers have the opportunity to earn free tickets to the Ringling Brothers and Barnum & Bailey Circus in January by participating in the Reading with Ringling program.


Take a look at the Winter Break Happenings guide for a list of events at your
