Students and other serious readers in your community urgently need these books: solid recent non-fiction, including college text books less than three years old. Jersey City Free Books can use books on history, biographies of historical figures (not celebrities), dictionaries, language learning books and media, computer books less than three years old, recent technical and scientific books and books on photography or art.
Jersey City Free Books is a resource for students and serious readers. We cannot receive “light” fiction — Mysteries, Thrillers and Romances — or Self-help titles. Since they can’t be used by current students, text books over three years old are not accepted, either. You can donate quality books at 297 Griffith Street, Jersey City, NJ 07307 during the hours listed at the Main Page of the Web Site.
Jersey City Free Books is very happy to get old black and white photos — snapshots.
Tropical fish magazines, bird magazines and pet magazines are great. Unfortunately, Jersey City Free Books can’t take any other periodicals
Do you have household items, small appliances or anything else still in the box that you’re never going to use? Please consider donating these items to Jersey City Free Books. We urgently need to raise funds. Anything that we can sell or use as a promotion for crowdfunding will be GREATLY appreciated!)
We can’t take damaged books, encyclopedias or text / computer books more than a couple of years old! We currently can’t accept any more Mysteries, Thrillers, Romances, children’s books, Fiction, cook books or comic books.
Unfortunately we don’t have a vehicle and so are not able to pick up books.
Here’s a Link to a PDF of a flyer for Jersey City Free Books. If anyone can print some out and then post them at school, work, the neighborhood, whatever, that would be great. If it’s possible to print a few extra and to bring them to Jersey City Free Books for us to hand out, WUNDERBAR!
Jersey City Free Books can also use these items:
- Picnic and card tables
- Clear plastic storage containers with lids
- Gigabyte switches
- Computers, cell phones or tablets less than four years old
(Either working or non-working — Secure removal and erasure of data is performed on all devices.)
