Hi everyone, thanks for your interest in the Library renovation progress!

The Main Library is reopening May 1, 2017 as scheduled.

We are in Phase II of a 3-phase renovation process. Over the past three months during the closure, we continued asbestos abatement. In this phase we are also replacing the aluminum windows with historically correct and more energy-efficient wood. The scaffolding is up and work on the windows is set to get underway.

We know it's frustrating when the Library isn't open when you want it to be, so we are scheduling the work to maximize the amount of time the building can remain open to the public during the renovations. Of course, this also makes the project last longer than if we remained closed the entire time. We really appreciate the support of all our patrons, and the neighbors of the Main Library, as we do the work that needs to be done.

The Main Library is a 116-year-old architectural treasure and a center of Jersey City's community. I encourage you all to come by after we open on Monday and see the progress for yourselves.

Any questions, please call or email me directly: 201-547-4579 ssmith (at) jclibrary (dot) org.
