MAIN LIBRARY CLOSED UNTIL THE END OF 2014 DUE TO ONGOING CONSTRUCTION

JERSEY CITY, N.J.   December 17, 2014 – The Main Library in Jersey City, located at 472 Jersey Avenue, will be closed until the end of the year, which coincides with the New Year’s Eve holiday of December 31, 2014, as the continued demolition prepares the way for the reconstruction of the first floor restrooms and the new shaft for the barrier-free elevator. The Main Library expects to reopen after New Year’s on Friday, January 2, 2015.

The Bookmobile will be stationed outside the Main Library at various times for patrons to return and borrow books and other library materials.

A skeleton crew of library employees will remain at the Main Library comprised of Library administrators. Library departments most visited by the public – Bonetti Children’s Room, Lending, Reference, Biblioteca Criolla and Federal Documents – will be closed until this individual project is completed. Employees from the various departments have been dispersed to locations throughout the system.
