It's Time...
to Rediscover Your Library

For New Jersey Librarians

The New Jersey State Library is committed to educating the public about the value of libraries through public awareness campaigns, community outreach and media relations. Public libraries statewide are encouraged to use these campaigns to educate their communities about library resources that are available at no additional cost to the user, and the opportunities they create.
