Statement on Net Neutrality

The New Jersey Library Association joins the American Library Association and many others who are concerned and troubled by the recent court decision regarding net neutrality.  New Jersey's public libraries are leaders in providing Internet access within their communities.  NJLA is committed to insuring people who use the Internet in a public library have equal access to online information and services.   Allowing commercial entities to prioritize some Internet traffic and/or block other traffic based on commercial interests is not in the public interest.  NJLA strongly supports efforts to resolve this matter in a manner that upholds the public's right to access information.

Donate to Support Library Staff Affected by Oklahoma Tornadoes

It’s our turn to help. In May, tornadoes struck Oklahoma causing great destruction in the area served by the Pioneer Library System.  Although no library buildings were damaged during the storm, several staff members did lose their homes.
