Residents Rally To Save Beaches Branch Library, Neptune Beach, FL

Neptune Beach Public Library

With the consolidation of Jacksonville in the 60's, many smaller towns were absorbed by the City of Jacksonville.

The proposal, and concept, was that savings could be realized, and both services and resources leveraged to provide for the larger city.

Coming in at 840+ square miles, Jacksonville, FL is larger the Los Angeles, and the idea of closing our Beaches Branch library is not going to "softly into that good night".

My parents both worked in publishing, and I grew up an avid reader, with a healthy respect & appreciation for libraries. 

Now, with budget cutbacks looming, the idea of closing several of our public libraries is being proposed.  I'm not supportive of this, and feel it is incredibly detrimental to our communities, and affects all ages.
