New Jersey library looking for yearbooks
Written by Evan Blackwell, CJE
Did you graduate from high school in Jersey City, New Jersey?
If you did, then there’s a pretty good chance your yearbook photo is soon going to be part of a collection at the Jersey City Public Library, thanks to librarian Cynthia Harris.
As Harris told The Jersey Journal this week, she developed a love for yearbooks during her 25 years as a teacher. And now, she’s hunted down more than 600 yearbooks from the 19 schools that have existed in Jersey City for the historical collection in the library’s New Jersey Room.
Local student volunteers have even helped enter data about the yearbooks into a searchable database on the library’s website, jclibrary.org.
