Aaronson v. Borough Council of the Borough of Somerville et.al

The New Jersey Library Association has reviewed the recent letter opinion issued by Judge Yolanda Ciccone in the case of Aaronson v. Borough Council of the Borough of Somerville, et. al.
According to this opinion the Somerville Public Library remains a recognized legal entity governed by Somerville Public Library Board of Trustees. It has not been dissolved.
Through the course of the case, the Board of the Somerville Public Library used its legal authority to enter into an amended, finite service agreement with the Somerset County Library.

Volunteer Library Staff: Talking Points

Public libraries provide essential services to the community; the use of volunteers enables libraries to
maintain and even enhance these services. It is imperative, however, that all key functions of the
public library be staffed by people with the appropriate level of professional or paraprofessional
education and training. There is a place for volunteers in areas of library operations, but no volunteer
should ever be put in charge of a library function that involves fiscal, confidentiality, or liability issues.

NJLA Statement: Urban Libraries Are Essential

The New Jersey Library Association advocates that all communities and elected officials
fund urban public libraries at levels above the statutory minimum, which will allow these
institutions to provide necessary and effective services for all residents of the state.
