Survey Kicks Off 21st Century Urban Branch Library Envisioning Project

Survey Kicks Off 21st Century Urban Branch Library Envisioning Project 

JACKSONVILLE, Fla., May 10, 2021 — Jacksonville Mayor Lenny Curry is inviting all Duval County residents to help our public library system with its 21st Century Urban Branch Library Envisioning Project by completing this brief survey: www.jaxpubliclibrary.org/urban-study

The City of Jacksonville and Jacksonville Public Library hired Aaron Cohen Associates to facilitate a community-focused design process resulting in an Urban Library Facilities Master Plan for five urban libraries: Bill Brinton Murray Hill, Brentwood, Brown Eastside, Dallas Graham and Westbrook. 

“Access to services like computing and public technology, lifelong learning programs and activities, and spaces that enable community engagement and gatherings---in addition to access to reading and learning materials---are especially vital for those in Jacksonville’s urban core,” says Mayor Curry. “I hope all Duval residents who care about the success of their families, friends and neighbors will take this survey to help maximize the impact of this project.” 

The survey will provide critical research for this envisioning project, which will continue over the next several months. Webinars, focus group meetings, walking tours and other activities will be held during that time to further engage with the community, answer questions and gather feedback for the project. 

The Mayor, Board of Library Trustees, and the Library staff appreciate everyone’s time and attention in helping to make the necessary enhancements, renovations, expansions or replacements of these smaller, older branches so they can adeptly meet the needs of the communities they serve now and in the future. 

Please take four minutes right now and complete this survey at www.jaxpubliclibrary.org/urban-study.

 If you do not have access to a computer or web-enabled smartphone you may visit any of the library locations listed above for a paper copy of the survey.

 If you have any questions please contact Chris Boivin, Assistant Director for Community Relations and Marketing for Jacksonville Public Library at 904-759-5643 or cboivin@coj.net or visit www.jaxpubliclibrary.org/urban-study.
