Bill Cosby Talks at St. Peter’s University on Friday, December 7, 2012

Library Board President Holds Up Library Card; ‘Cos’ in Background

Library Director Priscilla Gardner didn’t get exactly what she wanted, yet still she was pleased.

Bill Cosby, whose performance was re-scheduled from Saturday, November 3, due to Hurricane Sandy, spoke at Saint Peter’s University on Friday, December 7. Library Director Priscilla Gardner and NJ Room manager Cynthia Harris were both in attendance at the special reception before the iconic comedian took the stage.

Mr. Cosby, whose honest, yet blunt opinions illustrate the mind and heart of the Ph.D.-holding funny man, is clear about not posing for photo opportunities. Library Director Priscilla Gardner has been just as forthright, asking elected and appointed officials, and all sorts of famous people to smile while holding the Jersey City Free Public Library card for a photograph.
