Moving Beyond Our Box: Why We Do What We Do (the Way We Do It)

NJLA Annual Conference

Each and every year, NJLA and NJASL invites librarians, all types of library workers, and supporters and vendors to participate in engaging discussion, thoughtful workshops and presentations, networking and professional development during this three-day conference. On this website, you'll find information for professional and paraprofessional staff, Board of Trustee members, Friends volunteers, and other Conference participants.

Information for vendors, nonprofits and potential sponsors are listed under the Exhibitors tab, where specific details about participation and registration can be found.

The deadline for progams to be proposed by representatives of NJLA Committees, Sections, Roundtables or Task Forces has now passed! Sponsoring groups will be notified with more information in early January. Stay tuned for more updates on this website, including announcements of keynote speakers, special events, Conference sponsors, and more.

Questions? Email the NJLA Conference Committee Chairs or contact the NJLA Office directly. See you at the NJLA Conference at Harrah's Waterfront Conference Center in Atlantic City, NJ on April 24-26, 2017!

Code of Conduct for NJLA Conference

The New Jersey Library Association sponsors a variety of forums, meetings and professional development opportunities, including the annual spring Conference. The purpose of these events is to provide NJ librarians with opportunities to learn, connect and grow, which we believe to have a positive impact on the development and improvement of libraries throughout the state.

NJLA does not tolerate harassment of members, attendees, staff, venue workers, speakers or other participants at any meetings or events sponsored by the organization. Speakers are asked to frame discussion as openly and inclusively as possible and to be aware of how language or images may be perceived by others. Participants may - and do - exercise their option to leave a session or a conversation. As a statewide professional development association for librarians and library workers in New Jersey, the events sponsored by NJLA are an extension of work and no person should work under threat of harassment.

Read the complete NJLA Code of Conduct, guidelines to report a problem or incident during or following the 2017 NJLA Conference, and other Atlantic City contact information.
