Grand Reopening of West Bergen Branch Library on Monday, June 29
The Jersey City Free Public Library is pleased to announce the grand reopening of the West Bergen Branch Library, 476 West Side Avenue in Jersey City, which will be held on Monday, June 29, 2015 at 11 a.m., after a two-and-a half-month closure for major renovations.
“I am elated to bring a brand new West Bergen Branch Library to our loyal patrons, who, I’m certain, will be happy with all the changes,” said Library Director Priscilla Gardner. “This may be one of our three smaller branches, but the amount of people that call it ‘home’ is much larger than one would think!”
The public is invited to see the new West Bergen Branch Library when it opens on June 29.
West Bergen received a full upgrade, starting with these brand new renovations: floor tiles, painting, air conditioning system, windows, restrooms, screen in back of branch (to keep pigeons out), and a cleaned backyard of debris (for elimination of rodents).
However, the greatest of the brand new renovations is added space! With the addition of space next door, the West Bergen Branch received new shelving for that new space, which will be the new separate Children’s Room.
