NJLA Library Advocacy Fortnight

Join us this April 3 to 17 as library staff and supporters visit the local offices of NJ legislators to talk about the roles of our libraries in our communities and schools as well as the legislative agenda of the New Jersey Library Association.  Our organization is advocating for four bills:

NJLA Statement on Inclusion

The New Jersey Library Association (NJLA) and its Members are proud that NJ libraries are places of inclusion where all are welcome.  We are committed to assuring that the collections and services we provide meet the needs of all New Jerseyans and will continue working to address any barriers to library service.

Draft Resolution and Letters of Support for Library Boards Supporting School Libraries and Library Capital Construction

NJLA has created templates for a model resolutions for Public Library Board to pass in support of school library programs (https://njla.org/sites/default/files/NJLA-School-Library-Resolution_0.docx) in New Jersey and letters of support for the New Jersey Library Capital Construction Bond Bill (http://njlibrariesbuildcommunities.org/how-you-can-help/).

New Jersey Library Association's Legislative Priorities 2016/2017

New Jersey's Libraries: Community Assets

Libraries are essential community assets. New Jersey libraries provide access to information, technology, e-government and job seeker assistance as well as early childhood and adult literacy services and continuing education and instruction for all ages.  Ensuring that the residents of New Jersey have strong, relevant library services to meet today’s challenges requires a strong partnership between local libraries and the state of New Jersey.
