Jersey City Free Books is a community organization that provides something to read without charge, obligation, registration or indoctrination. Everyone is welcome to take any number of books for their reasonable, personal use. Many books are available.


There's so much more that we want to do, but can't because of lack of resources.   Just paying the rent and utilities is a hard struggle each month.  Jersey City Free Books currently is making do in a very small space and really must have more room to grow,  We also hope to acquire a used van or SUV so that transportation of books is possible.


Because of Jersey City Free Books, not having money doesn’t stop people from reading. A wide-distribution magazine recently listed us as a tourist destination! In addition to the local community, we’ve provided books for a school in the Philippines, a shelter in Camden, a mission in Africa and a student film in New York City. Jersey City Free Books is eager to assist local charities by providing quantities of books.
