Jersey City Library featured on Wendy Williams and Who Do You Think You Are? faces 800K budget cut, Happy National Library Week!

National Library Week will be celebrated April 10-April 16, 2011

Jersey City Public Library in New Jersey may not be celebrating.

The Jersey City Public Library is facing $800,000 in budget cuts.

This would mean:-

  • closing branches

  • laying off staff

  • termination of the Bookmobile program

  • no computer access for teens, seniors, and the unemployed

  • no new books

Interested Jersey City Public Library supporters are asked to call the City Clerk at 201-547-5150 to go on the speakers list for the next City Council Meeting, April 13, 2011, at 6pm at 280 Grove street.

Suggested talking points:

  • Why do you oppose Jersey City Public Library budget cuts?

  • Why is the Jersey Public Library important to you?

Please support the Jersey City Public Library ( and all public libraries) during NATIONAL LIBRARY WEEK.

(Note to fans of Who Do You Think You Are?- The main branch of the Jersey City Public Library has been featured on several episodes, especially the Rosie O'Donnell episode.

The staff of the library was featured on the Wendy Williams show.

It was also featured in the movie, Party Girl
