On Giving Tuesday, we're sharing NJLA President Carina González' story:

A colleague asked me to attend a Diversity & Outreach Section meeting. I didn’t really know what that meant, but I went to that meeting and found a warm welcome and lots of encouragement. They went out of their way to make me feel included.

When I went to that first D&O meeting, I found a group of library workers who shared my passion not only for libraries, but also for social justice. I was thankful that this space existed, and I wanted to help ensure it continued flourishing for future members.

This Giving Tuesday, join Carina in ensuring that future members have all the NJLA opportunities we’ve had (and more)! Make your donation today at https://buff.ly/3GmiSnw.

Whether you're a Children's Librarian, behind the scenes in Technical Services, or at the Circulation Desk, library workers are in the story business. From picture books to biopics, we work hard to connect people with the stories they need.

NJLA is a strong advocate for libraries and library workers in the state of New Jersey. On Giving Tuesday, recognize the work of libraries, library workers, and NJLA by making a gift at https://buff.ly/3GmiSnw.

Every Book Banned in America.

Through the courageous work of PEN America, here is a scrollable, shoppable list of every book currently banned in the United States

Support Budget Resolution 1332!
Please call or email your state legislators and ask them to support FY24 Budget Resolution 1332, which will restore per capita state aid funding for libraries. This is something that you and other NJLA members across the state have worked to pass in previous years. We're fortunate to have elected officials who understand the need for libraries to have adequate funding, and they need to hear from you in order to understand why this remains one of our highest priorities. https://buff.ly/3Z83SBS
