NJLA Statement on School/Public Library Joint Use Standards

Continuous learning is the foundation of the twenty-first century. Every resident of New Jersey will be seeking new opportunities to learn and grow. From infants to older adults, learning will be an ongoing pursuit. Access to educational resources will be the key. It has been widely recognized that libraries play a critical role in our educational process. In New Jersey there are currently 451 public library facilities and 2,295 school libraries. The demand for library services is increasing.

NJLA Statement on Children and Libraries

The New Jersey Library Association and the New Jersey Library Trustee Association provided funding for Grayson Barber, Esq. to develop this document regarding unattended children in New Jersey public libraries. This document is provided as background information on this topic and for the benefit of the members of NJLA and NJLTA. Every public library is encouraged to adopt its own policy regarding unattended children and have the local policy reviewed by the library’s attorney.

New Jersey Urban Libraries: Challenges and Strategies for Change

The Urban Libraries Section of the New Jersey Library Association was established to address the unique needs of urban public libraries of the state. As the need and demand for services in urban areas continues to grow, even as funding declines and other problems proliferate, the leaders of New Jersey’s urban libraries see the need to articulate the challenges facing their institutions so that they can communicate their issues to others and work together to devise new solutions.

NJLA Statement on Professional Development

"The library is a growing organism" ~S.R. Ranganathan

The finest libraries are learning organizations that support and encourage opportunities for staff to grow and develop. The changing and increasing expectations of patrons require a library staff that continues to be competent, current and customer-focused. This can only be achieved through professional development, which is critical to revitalizing the skills and energies of librarians as they work with colleagues and patrons.
