Temporary Closure of Bonetti Children's Room and Literacy Department, 5/21-6/10

Library Director Priscilla Gardner has announced that two departments of the Main Library, Bonetti Children’s Room and Literacy, will be closed beginning Mon., May 21 to accommodate window replacements in those departments.

As part of ongoing renovations, windows throughout the Main Library have been undergoing updates; the aluminum windows are being replaced with historically-correct, energy-efficient wood.

As we announced previously, some departments of the Main Library are experiencing temporary closures on a rotating basis to accommodate the window replacements.  We anticipate Bonetti Children’s Room and the Literacy Department will reopen on Mon., Jun. 11.

The Literacy Department office will be temporarily relocated to Greenville Branch Library during the closure:

1841 Kennedy Boulevard

Jersey City, N.J. 07305

Students enrolled in a Literacy class or tutoring session that normally meets at the Main Library will be notified of where they will meet during the closure. Anyone with questions about the location of Literacy services during the closure should contact the Literacy Department at 201-547-4518.

The Library’s digital resources remain available at

Signs will be posted and Library social media will be updated with this information to ensure all Library patrons are aware.
