Statement on Net Neutrality

Statement on Net Neutrality

The New Jersey Library Association joins the American Library Association and many others who are concerned and troubled by the recent court decision regarding net neutrality.  New Jersey's public libraries are leaders in providing Internet access within their communities.  NJLA is committed to insuring people who use the Internet in a public library have equal access to online information and services.   Allowing commercial entities to prioritize some Internet traffic and/or block other traffic based on commercial interests is not in the public interest.  NJLA strongly supports efforts to resolve this matter in a manner that upholds the public's right to access information.
