NJLA Library Advocacy Fortnight

Join us this April 3 to 17 as library staff and supporters visit the local offices of NJ legislators to talk about the roles of our libraries in our communities and schools as well as the legislative agenda of the New Jersey Library Association.  Our organization is advocating for four bills:

  • A2227/S430 Increases per capita state aid funding by $3 million dollars
  • A222/S2171 Authorizes issuance of 125,000,000 in general obligation bonds to finance capital projects at public libraries
  • A1427/S2633 Permits increase in municipal free public library tax upon voter approval
  • A4500 Requires certain ratios of school library media specialist to students in public schools
