Our membership meeting is open to all member library staff, but space is limited and you must register. You don’t need to be a Voting Representative to attend.

Keynote: The Transformative Power of Books
by Eric Smith

Eric will join us to deliver a keynote address that celebrates the power and potential of libraries; in particular, how the public library impacted his own life as a child (shout out to the Elmora Branch of the Elizabeth Public Library), and the joy of witnessing this power firsthand as someone who now works both as a children's book author and a literary agent representing books in libraries, the power they have.

Read about Eric!

Please note that the meeting will be held in person and will not be recorded for later viewing.

Registration Information
Limit

175

The meeting is open to all LibraryLinkNJ member library staff, but we need to balance three factors affecting registration for this meeting:

  1. Member interest
  2. Ensuring a quorum of Voting Representatives
  3. Maintaining a maximum of 175 attendees due to the venue capacity

As a result, we will open registration to Voting Representatives first, followed by general registration two weeks later:

  1. Registration for Voting Representatives opens on Monday, May 13, 2024. We urge you to register by May 26, ahead of the general membership registration opening on May 27.
    • Voting Representatives should be listed on our Voting Representatives list and will need to login into their LLNJ User Accounts to access the registration link.
    • If you are a Voting Representative and are not listed, please fill out our Website Support Form. Once we update your status, you will be able to login and register for the membership meeting.
    • Please log into your user account to access the registration link below. Only voting representative users will be able to view the link by logging into their accounts.
  2. Registration for all members opens on Monday, May 27, 2024. 

We will announce the opening of both registration periods via email blast.

Deadline for all Registration: Monday, June 10, 2024.
