The Bayonne Free Public Library announced that a large renovation program will start shortly at its building at 31st Street and Avenue C. According to Library Director JP Porcaro, the renovations are expected to take 10 months to complete.

The project will include repairing the facade, remodeling the children’s room and the lobby, and replacing 1930’s infrastructure.

The library will be closed for approximately four weeks starting on Monday, February 20th. Starting Tuesday, February 21st, the library will have a scaled-down operation offering some library services at the former Story Court Branch at 16 West 4th Street.

The library will continue to provide its online content, which is always available. The Story Court Library will retain the main library’s hours during the closure.

Those hours of operation will be Monday through Thursday, from 9:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m., Fridays and Saturdays from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., and fully closed on Sundays.

Additional updates and advisories will be issued during the renovations. All projections about the duration of the construction and temporary services are subject to change, due to weather and unforeseeable circumstances.
