Reference Grand Reopening
On Monday, April 29, 2019, the Jersey City Free Public Library held a ribbon cutting to celebrate the Grand Reopening of a critical facility in the Main Library: the Reference Department.
As the first major project of the third and final phase of the Main Library’s ongoing renovations, the Reference Department underwent a complete upgrade. The intricate plasterwork and ceiling details were carefully restored and repainted in beautiful blues, yellows and earthy reds. The department was completely refurnished with new shelving, new light fixtures were installed, and an electrical upgrade brings power supply directly to the restored original oak reading tables.
