Five Corners library branch to reopen in time for film fest

JERSEY CITY — The Five Corners Branch of the Jersey City Free Public Library, at 678 Newark Ave., was unexpectedly closed Friday, Oct. 14 due to a water main break on Summit Avenue.
However, a library spokeswoman said Friday that repairs are underway and water service should be restored to the neighborhood this evening.
The Five Corners Branch expects to reopen Sat., Oct. 15 at 9 a.m. for regular business hours.
The water main problem is not expected to interfere with the library’s participation in this weekend’s Golden Door International Film Festival.
On Saturday, two films that are part of the festival are scheduled to be screened at Five Corners: Sundance Film Festival winner “Smash His Camera” at noon, and Academy Award-winning documentary “When We Were Kings” at 2 p.m. Jersey City native Leon Gast, director of “When We Were Kings,” will be on hand at the library for a Q&A at 4 p.m. — E.
