These awards are chosen from a selection of nominations as recognized by the NJLA membership (you!), and are presented by NJLA at an Awards Reception at the Annual Conference.

Other awards presented by NJLA are those chosen directly by specific Sections and Committees, including: awards given by the College & University Section, the Garden State Children's and Teen Book Awards, the History & Preservation Section's Susan Swartzburg Award, and the super-secret President's Award.
