MentorNJ Online Meet-ups for All NJ Library Staff

This is the time and place to discuss your concerns, share your ideas, and “hang out” with your colleagues. We can discuss a particular topic or just chat about what this crazy life is like for library staff serving their customers during this pandemic era.

SAVE THE DATE: Mega Meet-up on April 16, 2021!

NJ Wi-Fi Locator Map

In an effort to address this ongoing problem, and help connect New Jersey residents to free and low cost wifi Internet access, the TOPCATS Futures Work Group is happy to announce the launch of the NJ Wi-Fi Locator map.

This map was developed in collaboration with the New Jersey State Library, the New Jersey Library Association Public Relations Committee, and LibraryLinkNJ. 

Sample Library Policy Under COVID-19 Government Mandated Restrictions

The Taskforce On Post COVID-19 Alignment, Trends and Strategies (TOPCATS) acknowledges the importance of having library policy under COVID-19 government-mandated restrictions. The following two libraries generously shared their policy as samples for NJ libraries to use as examples to craft their own. The task force recommends policies be reviewed by an attorney to ensure they are compliant and enforceable by the organization. Anyone can view and download this GoogleDoc.

Best Practices Documents for NJ Libraries

Taskforce On Post COVID-19 Alignment, Trends and Strategies (TOPCATS) has developed several guidelines documents for NJ Libraries, including:

  • Best Practices for Reopening 
  • Best Practices for Implementing Contactless Services
  • Effective Library Communication during COVID-19

LLNJ STATEMENT ON RACIAL JUSTICE

Black Lives Matter!

Every action, covert or overt, intended to diminish or marginalize people of any race should be denounced, condemned, and disavowed.

Libraries represent a place of refuge for all people, regardless of race, ethnicity, color, economic status, physical or mental capacities.

Delivery Question from LLNJ

Delivery - Unique Hours Survey

• This question is only for LibraryLinkNJ members who use the delivery service.

• We need your help. LibraryLinkNJ is preparing to re-bid the delivery contract later this year. In preparation, we need some information about any unique daytime weekday hours your library is open. We are defining “unique” as anything shorter than a full 9 am to 5 pm. 

School libraries on delivery do not need to respond to this request.

• Please find out if your library needs to respond to this question and fill fill out the survey form before Friday, July 14th.
