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.Tags: Testimony and Comments

With the election of NJLA Member-at-Large Leah Wagner to the position of First Vice President/President-Elect, the Executive Board must fill her vacant Member-at Large seat.
At the first Board meeting of the new NJLA year on July 18, 2017 NJLA President Michael Maziekien and the Executive Board authorized a special NJLA election to fill this vacancy.
At this time the NJLA Nominations and Elections Committee is seeking candidates for this great NJLA leadership opportunity.Tags: NJLA News
