Tips for Using the JPL Website


The Jacksonville Public Library's website is best viewed in a 1024 x 768 or larger display. Displays of smaller size may find the page too cramped.

Supported Browsers

Jacksonville Public Library makes every attempt to support most browsers. The site works best with the following commonly used browser versions:

  • Internet Explorer 5.0 +
    (optimized for IE 7.0)
  • Firefox 1.07 +
  • Netscape Communicator 6.0 +
  • AOL 8.0 +
  • Safari 1.0 +


Javascript is required by the site. Javascript supports the display of various links on the website, such as catalog searching, image enlarging, the date and time stamps on the pages.

Pop-Up Blockers

The Jacksonville Public Library website uses various pop up windows to streamline navigation. Uses of these windows include:

  • Various help windows,
  • Enlarging images,
  • Viewing printable versions of some pages and more.

You may need to configure your popup blocker to allow the library's website to function correctly while viewing these items.


Many of the documents on the Jacksonville Public Library website are in *.PDF format. This format is printer-friendly and easy to read, yet does require the installation of the Adobe Acrobat Reader plug-in.
