New Jersey Library Association Statement on Privatization

Free access to information is an essential component for any democratic society. Historically, strong local public libraries have provided this service to New Jersey residents.

Statement of the New Jersey Library Association Opposing the Privatization of the Vineland Public Library

Good evening.  I am Patricia Tumulty, Executive Director of the New Jersey Library Association. The New Jersey Library Association is the oldest and largest library organization in the state. We were established in 1890 to improve library services to all residents of New Jersey.

NJLA strongly opposes the privatization of the Vineland Public Library.  This is not the first time this corporation has been in New Jersey. We opposed previous efforts by this corporation to privatize libraries in New Jersey before and we do so now.
