JPL brings home the Gold

Jacksonville Public Library's Literacy Curriculum Project was recently honored as an "LSTA Exemplary Project" by the State Library of Florida. Congrats!

The Jacksonville Public Library’s adult literacy department has taken teaching strategies and concepts from several nationally recognized programs and created materials to serve lower-level readers. These materials focus on the understanding of syllable division and the sounds created by our six syllable types, concepts often not incorporated into traditional adult literacy programs.

For more information about this project (Volunteers as Special Educators), please contact Sharon Jaskula with the Jacksonville Public Library at 904-630-0353 (
