The 2018 New Jersey Library Association Conference theme is a big one. Speak Freely comes at a time when we all need to feel comfortable and confident in expressing ourselves, and it also recognizes the need for all library workers and supporters across the state, regardless of library type, to feel valued within NJLA -- this is truly YOUR association. We are very much looking forward to celebrating the wealth and diversity of knowledge, experience and creativity that will come from our speakers and programs! The Conference schedule is now complete; only proposals received by November 10, 2017 were eligable for consideration.

Thank you to our 2018 NJLA Conference Sponsors!
