Library to name Greenville Branch for journalist Earl Morgan


JERSEY CITY – The Jersey City Free Public Library will dedicate the Greenville Branch after Earl A. Morgan, a journalist and community hero, at a dedication ceremony and reception on Oct. 3 at 11 a.m. The branch is located at 1841 Kennedy Boulevard.
Morgan spent a great deal of time at the Miller Branch, as well as the Greenville Branch, where he visited the Afro-American Historical and Cultural Society Museum on the second floor.
Library Director Priscilla Gardner recalled Morgan’s long personal history with the Jersey City Free Public Library.
“Earl would share many stories with me, especially how his mother would often bring Earl to Miller Branch during his youth. He often mentioned that the same table where he sat at as a young child was still in the children’s department at Miller Branch.”
