LibraryLinkNJ Virtual Town Halls

Budget Update Meetings

To keep member libraries up to date on both the current state and potential future of LibraryLinkNJ’s budget and services, we are hosting virtual town hall meetings through May 2019.

Materials from the March 26th meeting --- Presentation Slides, Recording of the meeting, and updated FAQ on the future of LibraryLinkNJ --- are available!

The next Virtual Town Hall will be held on May 23.


Are you a current MLIS student in the New Jersey area who is interested in working in a public or academic library? Or, are you a current library employee interested in exploring your career options in a public or academic library setting? If so, check out the NJ Job Shadowing Programs!


This is an opportunity for local librarians and library staff to get together in an informal way and discuss issues and topics related to our daily work. Learn from others, and share your insights on targeted topics.

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.
