CAS Produces Studio 676 Programs
JERSEY CITY, N.J. January 8, 2013 – Today, The Jersey Journal released an article on NJ.com and in its print newspaper, entitled, “Jersey City music teacher , 61, charged with raping 8-year-old pupil,” and attributed Studio 676-held violin lessons and recitals to the programming from the Miller Branch Library.
The Community Awareness Series (CAS) produced the program series from Studio 676, featuring the violin lessons and recitals from Henry Granderson – a very important distinction, since no staff members from the Miller Branch Library produced those programs, nor is Mr. Granderson an employee of the Jersey City Free Public Library. Through his association with CAS, he is a vendor.

HURRICANE SANDY UPDATE: MAIN LIBRARY’S AIR QUALITY PASSES MUSTER
Re-Opens to the Public on Monday, 12/17
JERSEY CITY, N.J. December 11, 2012 – ‘There’s no place like home’.
That’s what Library Director Priscilla Gardner and all Jersey Avenue employees dispersed throughout the library system have been feeling ever since the Main Library was closed due to damages from Hurricane Sandy.
The Main Library sustained major flooding in its basement and opened only for one-and-a-half days before needing to remain closed due its poor air quality born of mold and E. coli contaminants. The basement areas were flooded with up to five feet of deep-sea water, mixed with sewerage from backed up sewers in Downtown Jersey City.
