The Jersey City Free Public Library Celebrates Black History Month!

Black History Month is a dedicated time to honor and celebrate the rich heritage, culture, and contributions of Black Americans. The Jersey City Free Public Library (JCFPL) embraces this opportunity to highlight the historical and contemporary contributions of the Black community. In alignment with our commitment to Lifelong Learning and Community Well-Being, the JCFPL is proud to offer a range of resources and programs that illuminate the pivotal roles and enduring impact of Black Americans in shaping our nation and community.


Through these resources, we aim to support our community in exploring the diverse narratives and significant contributions of Black Americans to our shared history. We invite you to engage with these resources and participate in library events throughout Black History Month.

For branch hours and locations to further explore these resources, please visit our Branch Hours and Locations page.

Hear from Our Patrons:

Great and friendly service! Love that they call me personally when the books I placed on hold are in for pick up. They stay on top of things and really try to get to know us on a personal level 😊
