The Glenn D. Cunningham Branch Library and Community Center was the first new branch library constructed in Jersey City since 1962. It opened to the public on August 18, 2004, replacing and upgrading the Claremont Branch Library, which had been located in a storefront one block north at 291 Martin Luther King Drive.
The Cunningham Branch is a 5,200-square-foot facility, featuring a community room, outdoor shaded reading area, and children’s paving stone maze.
Library Director Priscilla Gardner, who served as project manager on the Cunningham Library’s construction, takes pride in providing 21st-century library services and programs to the residents of this neighborhood, and in providing a community meeting space for the many organizations working in the M.L. King Redevelopment Area.
