Visiting the Literacy Alliance? 

We look forward to seeing you! While much of the Literacy Alliance’s activity takes place throughout the community, our main office is located in the Jessie Ball duPont Center in downtown Jacksonville. The address is: 

40 East Adams Street, Suite 215

Jacksonville, FL 32202

The duPont Center is at the corner of Adams and Ocean Streets, and the entrance is on the Adams Street side. Once you enter the building, check in with the front desk and let them know you are here to visit the Literacy Alliance. If you are arriving before 8:30 in the morning or after 5:30 in the afternoon, the doors may be locked. If so, push the button on the wall to the left of the front doors to ring the front desk. If you are arriving during these times, you are encouraged to be in touch with your Literacy Alliance contact to ensure someone is available to meet you. 

After checking in, unless a Literacy Alliance representative has made arrangements to meet you in the lobby, take the elevators or the stairs to the second floor. The offices are in Suite 215 which is at the top of the stairs or straight ahead and on the left after exiting the elevators. 

Parking is largely street parking at meters. Parking meters immediately around the building are $1 per half hour. The meters a few blocks away go down in price. You can also pay daily or half-day rates at many of the garages or parking lots around the building. If you would like to identify specific lots or garages before your visit, we recommend using

If you are a student, please make sure to contact the office so we can inform you about free parking options available just for students.
