We can’t take damaged books, encyclopedias or text / computer books more than a couple of years old! Current students can’t use out-of-date text books.

Books can only accepted when the shop is open. PLEASE! Don’t leave anything outside! When you arrive, let us know that you are here. Then, we’ll assist with the unloading,

Many, MANY paperback Romances, Mysteries and Thrillers are available from Jersey City Free Books at 297 Griffith St. Hours are listed at JerseyCityFreeBooks.com We can supply institutions with these books in quantity.

Please just bring boxes for packing when you stop by to pick up the books. The cartons that 8.5″ X 11″ copy paper come in work great.

For those looking for books in quantities, it’s best not to stop by during bad weather. On those days, we quite likely might not be able to assist you.

Jersey City Free Books ponders the wisdom of Mae West.

Mae West said, “Too much of a good thing can be wonderful!” (Is this where Clairol got the idea that blondes have more fun?) Not to delve too deeply into the inner significance of a dead actress (or advertising campaign), Jersey City Free Books has encountered a similar situation. The happy homemaker gene has fully expressed itself during the current rainy spell. (After all, Martha Stewart was born in Jersey City. If she was raised here she would’ve known enough to keep her yap shut when the FBI rang the bell, but that’s a topic for another discussion.) Day at the beach, mountains, park, etc. cancelled, many have spent the gloomy free time cleaning — and clearing out boxes of unused books to donate.

Jersey City Free Books recently has received THOUSANDS of books. Many, many different works of fiction and non-fiction just can’t wait to make friends with you.

All are encouraged to stop by to pick up a book, especially those without jobs. Many among the long-term unemployed, not able now to afford the expense, are finding it necessary to give up Internet access. Even though not “wired,” through books, they can stay connected to the world of ideas.
