NJLA Statement on the Use of Library Spaces

NJLA supports the use of public spaces in libraries for a wide variety of activities. Libraries may limit certain services and resources to residents and cardholders, but should in all other respects welcome members of the public into their public spaces without inquiring into the reasons for using the library.

A library may designate one or more rooms as limited public meeting spaces, which may be reserved in advance. The library may charge a fee for the use of these limited public meeting spaces.
