New Jersey's Libraries: Community Assets

Libraries are essential community assets. New Jersey libraries provide access to information, technology, e-government and job seeker assistance as well as early childhood and adult literacy services and continuing education and instruction for all ages.  Ensuring that the residents of New Jersey have strong, relevant library services to meet today’s challenges requires a strong partnership between local libraries and the state of New Jersey.
