Students and other serious readers in your community urgently need these books!

Donate at the Jersey City Free Books GoFundMe Page.

Donations of over a box of books is by appointment only. Do read this post first and then send some pictures of the books to JerseyCityFreeBooks@gmail.com

Jersey City Free Books is a resource for students, serious readers and young 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.

Students and other serious readers in your community urgently need these books: solid recent fiction and non-fiction, including text books less than three years old. Literary classics are always welcome. Children’s titles and books of all types in languages other than English are great, too.

Jersey City Free Books is very happy to get old black and white photos — snapshots.

Comic books, graphic novels, tropical fish magazines, bird magazines and pet magazines are great. Unfortunately, Jersey City Free Books can’t take any other periodicals

Audio or video on CD or DVD is great. Vinyl records are OK, too. Tapes, we can’t take.

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!

Jersey City Free Books can also use these items:
* Picnic and card tables
* Metal shelves similar to the ones now in the shop.
* 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.)

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, or Romances.

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!
