The following message appears on the Jersey City Library's NJ Room Web Page:
"The NJ Room, as well as all the Main Library, will be closed for an indefinite period due to damage from Superstorm Sandy but should reopen before the new year. If you have any questions for “Ask the Librarian” you may send them since we do have access to some of our databases remotely and may be able to help you. We can NOT retrieve any obituaries or perform any other research that requires use of the microfilm, city directories or other print material until we are back in the building. We are sorry for the inconvenience and look forward to being able to serve your needs again in the near future."
