TESTIMONY OF PATRICIA A. TUMULTY, EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR NEW JERSEY LIBRARY ASSOCIATION BEFORE THE SENATE BUDGET AND APPROPRIATIONS COMMITTEE, MARCH 21, 2012

I am Patricia Tumulty, the Executive Director of the New Jersey Library Association. I am speaking today directly on behalf of the 1700 members of our Association and the 1500 members of the New Jersey Library Trustee Association. But more importantly, I am also speaking on behalf of residents of New Jersey who visited our public libraries. Last year, there were almost 50 million visits to our public libraries (49,941,587). Over 170,000 people walk through our doors every day. That’s like filling Giants Stadium twice a day.

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.
