The essential focus of the collection is on artists' books and the broader topics of the Book Arts: letterpress printing, fine binding, handpapermaking and paper decoration.


First Friday of Each Month
3 to 6 PM

It's a fast paced world. We send text messages, we send emails... but what happens when you receive a handwritten letter in your mailbox? We hold the letter, we pause, we look at it. It's a moment out of time and a small cause for celebration.

In this spirit, JCBA would like to spread more joy and celebration in this world. So we're hosting a series of letterwriting gatherings on Friday afternoons. Come join in the fun the first Friday of each month. Bring your own stuff, or choose from the amazing papers, pens and inks, sealing wax and rubber stamps we'll have on hand for your use. We'll have stamps for you and cookies and tea and coffee.

Come spend time with friends and family in far away places as you write them letters... and spend time with some new friends who share a love of Real Mail.

$10 buys you access to all our great supplies, with complimentary stamps, cookies and coffee. Come enjoy a fun afternoon and bring a friend!


      From I-95 or the Florida Turnpike, exit Glades Road, east. The FAU campus is located just east of I-95 on the north side of Glades Road. If you enter the campus at FAU's main entrance (the one furthest west on Glades Road... and the first one you get to approaching from I-95 or the turnpike), you will enter on West University Drive (formerly Broward Avenue). Continue straight on West University Drive to the traffic light at its intersection with Volusia Street. Turn right onto Volusia Street. You will see a parking garage on Volusia Street, and the Wimberly Library is the next building east of the parking garage.


      Visitor parking is available in the library parking lot. The metered system accepts cash and credit cards at the rate of $1 per hour.
