We welcome a new member to LibraryLinkNJ: At their March meeting, the Executive Board approved the membership application of The Jersey College School of Nursing Library, Teterboro Campus. Congratulations and welcome!

Congratulations to Eleana Cordova, Adult Reference & Interlibrary Loan Librarian at Wayne Public Library, on receiving the national STARS-Atlas Systems Mentoring Award, which facilitates a grant towards costs of travel and attendance at the annual American Library Association conference this June in Chicago.

Library Journal released their annual list of Movers & Shakers this month, and once again, New Jersey was very well represented! We’re so proud of our colleagues:

  • Doug Baldwin, Piscataway Public Library, highlighted for his creative & can-do spirit as a leader of NJ Makers Day (an initiative LibraryLinkNJ is proud to have supported!)
  • Joan Divor, Burlington County Library System, honored for her work on small business education and promoting entrepreneurship
  • Tonya Garcia, Long Branch Free Public Library (and NJLA’s 2016 Librarian of the Year), celebrated for her innovative community engagement programs
  • Krista Welz, North Bergen High School, whose tireless, #NeverNotWorking ethos earned her a spot in this year’s class
