West Bergen Branch Closed Today, Thursday, April 9,  Until Further Notice

JERSEY CITY, N.J.   April 9, 2015 – The West Bergen Branch, 475 West Side Avenue, of the Jersey City Free Public Library has closed today, Thursday, April 9, 2015, until further notice.

West Bergen had reopened for roughly one week from its last closure on March 24; however, the problems of an older building just cannot be surmounted at this time. This storefront branch library has had different problems in the past and library administration, along with city officials, are looking for a suitable replacement space.

“We are very sorry that a full closure of an undetermined time period cannot be avoided,” said Chief Librarian Hussein Odeh.
