Advocacy for Highly Effective School Library Programs in New Jersey

The New Jersey Library Association, along with partners, is actively advocating for New Jersey students to have the opportunity to improve literacy and build information literacy skills taught by a state certified school library media specialist.  These skills will prepare New Jersey Students for college and beyond.

New Jersey Library Association (NJLA) Calls on New Jersey to Support Highly Effective School Library Programs
