We’re pleased to share that at LibraryLinkNJ’s Membership Meeting on June 13, Voting Representatives passed the following documents guiding The Cooperative’s work in Fiscal Year 2019, which begins on July 1, 2018:

The LibraryLinkNJ Executive Board will meet on July 19 to reorganize for the new fiscal year. The Cost Share Team of the LibraryLinkNJ Delivery Task Force will meet throughout the summer to develop a fair and equitable plan for cost-sharing among those member libraries participating in the Statewide Delivery Service.

The presentation slides by keynote speaker Miguel Figueroa are available on the membership meeting page. You can access video of his presentation on our Facebook Page, as well.

The Cost Share Team of LibraryLinkNJ’s Delivery Task Force will be meeting throughout the summer to develop a fair and equitable cost sharing formula for our 400 plus member libraries on the statewide delivery service.

The Cost Share Team will make their recommendations to the Executive Board by early September for discussion and action at their meeting that month.

Did you know that you can schedule a one-on-one evaluation and consultation for your library’s social media presence with Program Coordinator & Social Media Manager Sophie Brookover and Social Media Intern Reed Gillen?

They’ll review your activity across a variety of channels, and give you tailored advice to help you bring your content and strategies to the next level.

Here’s what your colleagues are saying about LibraryLinkNJ’s Social Media Consultations:

“This consultation is a must if you care about maintaining your social media presence in a professional, engaging manner.” -- Kathleen Czarnecki, Kenilworth Public Library

“It was nice to receive guidance in areas we were unsure of as we are re-starting our social media efforts. It was also nice to be reassured of our existing approaches and ideas.” -- Gary Marks, William & Lorraine Cheng Library, William Paterson University

Fill out this quick form to provide a sense of what you’re looking for. Sophie and Reed will get in touch to schedule a date.
