Little Free Libraries In Jersey City

Looking for a good book? Bookstores are great, but you can find many gems in your local Little Free Library! The Little Free Library is a nonprofit organization that inspires a love of reading, builds community, and sparks creativity by fostering neighborhood book exchanges worldwide. The motto: Take a Book, Return a Book. We’ve created a list of Little Free Libraries in Jersey City to help you find your next read.

Hamilton Park

Once you’ve seen The Owl, you know you’re in the right place! This little library is for children’s books only and will be a great place to find good children’s books in good condition, any time of the day or night, and drop off some children’s books meeting those criteria for others to enjoy!

Kensington Ave

Kensington Avenue (Between West Side Ave & JFK Blvd)


The Little Library located at Fasttrack-Languages was inspired by the idea of creating a book club for children! The little library was created with the vision and mission of encouraging children’s curiosity for books, stories, and reading in general for fun, not for an assignment or a requirement.
