Invitational Statewide Meeting about the Future of LibraryLinkNJ
FY19 & Beyond: The Future of LibraryLinkNJ Services

On October 15, LibraryLinkNJ held a meeting with key stakeholders from the New Jersey library community to discuss the future of LibraryLinkNJ. We planned this meeting in collaboration with the New Jersey State Library, which funds LibraryLinkNJ and is responsible for the coordination, promotion, and funding of the New Jersey Library Network.

Participants had the opportunity to ask their own questions, get up-to-date answers, and contribute to the process concerning the following key questions:

  • Where will LibraryLinkNJ secure funds to stay open beyond this fiscal year?
  • What is going to happen with library delivery if LibraryLinkNJ dissolves in June 2019?
  • Regardless of the future of LibraryLinkNJ, how can I advocate for priority services for my library and the library community?

We invite you to review the following meeting materials, available in the Event Files section of this page:

  • Meeting agenda 
  • Executive Director Kathy Schalk-Greene's presentation slides
  • Notes from the Q&A session with LibraryLinkNJ Executive Director Kathy Schalk-Greene
  • Key Ideas from Small Group Discussions
  • Visual breakdown of LibraryLinkNJ’s FY18 budget
  • FY19 budget approved by the LibraryLinkNJ membership on June 13, 2018
