Main Library

On September 5, 2000, Jacksonville Mayor John Delaney asked Duval County voters to support The Better Jacksonville Plan, a referendum that would fund quality of life improvements. Voters approved the plan, and soon construction was under way on various projects including a new ballpark, a new sports and entertainment arena, a new courthouse, and numerous road improvements. The half-cent sales tax also included funding for six new branch libraries, renovations to 12 existing branches and a new flagship library in the heart of Downtown.
Not since the Great Fire of 1901 had Jacksonville undergone such a transformation, and this main library was part of a new chapter in Jacksonville's history.
