Renovate Main Library in Jersey City


The Jersey City Free Public Library is an exquisite architectural structure in the Italian Renaissance tradition that greets visitors with a Tiffany window in its main lobby.  The Main Library which has served Jersey City residents since its grand opening in 1901, offers a wide array of educational and cultural programming. 

Today, this wonderful community asset is in need of significant modernization to ensure ADA compliance and to provide the museum-quality, climate-controlled stacks necessary to store and preserve the New Jersey Room's priceless historic documents and maps.

Donors will have the opportunity to provide an unrestricted gift or identify specific project areas to fund. Everyone is encouraged to give - no donation is too small!

Please help renovate the century-plus historic Main Library in Jersey City, NJ. 

Please contact Library Director Priscilla Gardner @ [phone redacted] if you would love to donate.
