The Bookmobile Will Be OFF-ROAD due to Generator Repairs

The Bookmobile Will Be OFF-ROAD, Starting Today, Monday, March 21, Due to Generator Repairs

Bookmobile Expected to be Off-Road All Week

JERSEY CITY, N.J.   March 21, 2016 – The Jersey City Free Public Library announced this week that the Bookmobile is now off the road, starting today, Monday, March 21, and will remain off-road the remainder of the week, due to repairs to the generator.

Library patrons can bring back any materials to all nine branches. Anyone who had borrowed library materials from the Bookmobile, including when it was parked in front of the Main Library (due to its closure for renovations), will need to go to a local branch library.

If you need to wait for the Bookmobile, you will not incur any fines during the time the Bookmobile is off the road.

“This repair is entirely necessary, as the generator operates all electrical components of the Bookmobile. We apologize for this continued inconvenience, however, the Bookmobile has been on the road constantly since May of 2008, so it’s really not ‘new’ anymore and will need repairs,” said Library Director Priscilla Gardner.
