Adapting to Changing Circumstances

Jersey City Free Public Library is a constant. Throughout the pandemic period, we’ve all had to adapt to circumstances that are changing quickly. The library has been working hard to continue to provide patrons with ways to enrich minds and nurture curiosity. We are confident many of the new programs and initiatives the library implemented will last beyond the pandemic.

Call to Support the JCFPL

Jersey City Free Public Library is needed more than ever! We ask you to stand with everyone who relies on the library. We can all come together as champions of JCFPL.
