The Jacksonville Public Library is asking for the public's help to take down Cleveland.

The two cities are the top vote getters in in JetBlue’s annual Soar with Reading contest, which could net the city's library a new kid's reading room and $25,000 worth of new children's books. 

This year, Jacksonville was one of 16 finalists and, as of Friday morning, had edged out  Cleveland by 35.67 percent to 26.39 percent. 

But with voting running through Friday, August 31, the Jacksonville Public Library is asking people to vote "as many times as you can."
