Each singer/storyteller will perform twice so you have two opportunities to stop in during your busy day! The Festival will be held INSIDE the library!

Worried your little one won't be able to sit still? Don't worry! We have a great new play area for them, crafts on the patio and we will have rocks to paint that you can hide around town or leave for us to send to a soldier in Kuwait.

There will also be an adult music festival, Bookstock, in the greenspace behind the library at the same time. The Friends of the Library will be having a book sale and hosting a concession stand with snacks to purchase.


Be a Part of #jacksonvillerocks

Have you heard of #jacksonvillerocks? People are painting and hiding rocks all over town! Stop in anytime on Friday, September 22nd and Saturdday the 23rd to paint a rock of your own and join the #jacksonvillerocks craze!
