AND THE WALLS CAME TUMBLING “UP”!!!
The yellow walls represent the sides of the soon-to-be fully constructed Martin Luther King Branch Library and Community Center in the heart of the African-American community in Jersey City. The Martin Luther King Branch Library, located on the west side of Martin Luther King Drive (between Myrtle & Bostwick Avenues), is scheduled to be opened on August 17, 2004 and will replace the Claremont Branch Library, currently located at 291 Martin Luther King Drive.
A FITTING BURIAL
Soon the Time Capsule, being held in the hands of Library Director Priscilla Gardner, who as Project Manager is shepherding the building construction, will be inserted into the cornerstone of the 5,200-square foot new branch library, the first built since 1962, of the Jersey City Free Public Library. The Time Capsule will be opened in 50 years from its burial. Library Director Priscilla Gardner and Ken Morelli (left), director of capital projects for the library, also serves as on-site manager on the creation of the Martin Luther King Branch Library and Community Center.
