NJLA Statement on Library Confidentiality and Access to Children’s Library Record

Over the years NJLA has received numerous questions from librarians, library board members and parents regarding whether or not the NJ Library Confidentiality statute (N.J.S.A. 18A:73-43.2) protects the confidentiality of children as well as adults.  NJLA’s position is that this law protects the confidentiality of ALL library users in New Jersey.  Nothing in the statute exempts minors from its protections.  The rights of minors to privacy in reading their choice of library materials should be respected and protected.

Governor Vetos Library Funding

NJLA is very disappointed that Governor Christie vetoed the $3 million increase in state aid approved by the Legislature in the 2015 state budget. We appreciate the strong bipartisan support from so many in the Legislature as well as the many library advocates who worked on this effort.
