Library Giving Day

We’re kicking off our socially distanced outdoor events of 2021 during Library Week, April 4-10. A lot of people are tired of looking at the computer. They’re anxious to get outside, see friends, make new ones and do something that does not include staring at a screen. Join us across Jersey City for a plethora of programs including story times, arts & crafts, music, movement classes, and more!

We Are Now Fine Free!

Here at the Jersey City Free Public Library, we believe in empowering all people to strive for their dreams and goals. By eliminating fines for our materials, we can continue to do just that while cultivating equity by reaching even more people in our community.
