The Jackson Public Library has been a resource for many generations of Jacksonians, serving the community for over 100 years. Its collection of books, audios, and videos may be borrowed at no charge by any resident or property owner of Jackson. If a book is not in our collection, it can usually be obtained through an inter-library loan--greatly expanding the titles that the library can make available. Non-residents and visitors can obtain a library card for a modest fee of $25 per year.
Thanks to generous community donations, the Library now has the ability to continuously monitor detailed weather data, such as: temperature, humidity, wind, rain, and barometric pressure and post this information directly to a Weatherlink Website. The website uploads data every minute as part of a nationwide data collecting network.
In addition, WeatherLink software installed on one of the Library's computers allows users to see detailed analysis and graphing of weather data taken directly from our station's data logger and console.
