Please consider making a gift as we serve Jersey City remotely and prepare for when we can reopen.

In these unprecedented times, the Jersey City Free Public Library is a constant. The Library is a cornerstone of our community, offering fun and informative programs for all ages, and many resources for knowledge, discovery, and enrichment. 

Throughout this crisis period, we've all had to adapt to circumstances that are changing quickly. Here at the Library, we have been working hard to continue to provide our patrons with ways to enrich their minds and nurture their curiosity. 

We've helped parents navigate the at-home learning landscape and provided valuable distance-learning resources to people of all ages in our community. We’ve offered help with job searching and career planning to the many people in our community who are suddenly facing unemployment. We are stepping up our efforts to provide critically needed resources to small businesses, nonprofits, and arts groups that are confronted with an uncertain future. 

We can all come together as champions of our local libraries. 
We ask you to stand with everyone who relies on the Jersey City Free Public Library. Please support everything you LOVE at our Library! 

Each dollar you donate will help keep our Library strong and more prepared to adapt to the changing times and a growing need for our many critical services. Every little bit helps.  

Will you show your appreciation and support for your local library by making a gift? 

Thank you. Your gift helps us continue our dedicated efforts.
