Pieces of the historical puzzle that bind The Provident Bank and the City of Jersey City now have become part of the Jersey City Free Public Library, for their preservation and for all to see.

CURRENT MAP – The New Jersey Room at Jersey City’s Main Library has many archival maps. Featured, is an 1876 copy of the original 1841 map of the area. This one is separated in three sections, and is encased in plastic, for use by library patrons

All items being donated to the New Jersey Room of the Jersey City Free Public Library are property of The Provident Bank and were accumulated in the course of its 173 years of banking.

“Provident and Jersey City share more than a connection with Dudley Gregory, Provident’s first acting president and Jersey City’s first mayor. The Provident Bank shares a rich history with the City of Jersey City: its businesses, its peoples, its successes and its challenges. We take pride in this shared history, and we are delighted that we can share our treasure trove of historical information with the residents of Jersey City through the Jersey City Public Library,” said Jean Quinn, vice president, public relations, The Provident Bank.

Also representing The Provident was Nicholas Cavaluzzi, vice president and area manager, Jersey City.

“The Provident Bank has been with us from the beginning, so it’s only fitting that we preserve its history,” said Library Director Priscilla Gardner. “The Provident continually offers the Library support through donations to various capital improvement projects.” In recent years, The Provident Bank Foundation has donated the following: $5,000 for the Five Corners Branch computer training center and $10,000 toward the capital improvement plan, both in 2004; $20,000 toward the 2008 purchase of the custom-designed and –built Bookmobile, and $15,000 toward purchase and installation of security cameras throughout the system in 2009.
