JERSEY CITY, N.J. June 24, 2015 – The Jersey City Free Public Library regretfully reports the Bookmobile will be off-road starting today, June 24, due to mechanical problems. It is currently being serviced, and as soon as the repairs are completed it will return to its regular schedule.
Library patrons can bring back any materials to the Main Library and all branches.
If you need to wait for the Bookmobile, you will not incur any fines during the time the Bookmobile is off the road.
“We know how much our Bookmobile users love their mobile branch library. That’s why we are making sure the vehicle is in good repair for its daily Red and Blue routes. As always, we apologize for any inconvenience,” said Assistant Library Director Sonia Araujo, who oversees the Bookmobile.

Grand Reopening of West Bergen Branch Library on Monday, June 29
The Jersey City Free Public Library is pleased to announce the grand reopening of the West Bergen Branch Library, 476 West Side Avenue in Jersey City, which will be held on Monday, June 29, 2015 at 11 a.m., after a two-and-a half-month closure for major renovations.
“I am elated to bring a brand new West Bergen Branch Library to our loyal patrons, who, I’m certain, will be happy with all the changes,” said Library Director Priscilla Gardner. “This may be one of our three smaller branches, but the amount of people that call it ‘home’ is much larger than one would think!”
The public is invited to see the new West Bergen Branch Library when it opens on June 29.
West Bergen received a full upgrade, starting with these brand new renovations: floor tiles, painting, air conditioning system, windows, restrooms, screen in back of branch (to keep pigeons out), and a cleaned backyard of debris (for elimination of rodents).
However, the greatest of the brand new renovations is added space! With the addition of space next door, the West Bergen Branch received new shelving for that new space, which will be the new separate Children’s Room.
