Keeping Up with Conference

Every year, the conference committee tirelessly keeps up with what’s happening on the floor. The conference itself may be overwhelming for an attendant to keep track of because there’s so much going on, but here’s how to follow us on Twitter and Instagram to keep up with the best highlights from panels and luncheons!

Exhibit Hall Highlights

There’s plenty to see and do in the Exhibit Hall!

Stop by on Tuesday from 10:00am-5:00pm and Wednesday from 8:30am-1:30pm. Join NJLA President Chris Carbone for the ceremonial ribbon cutting Grand Opening Celebration on Tuesday at 11:00am thanks to our Bronze sponsor CWA Local 1031 -- free coffee and refreshments for all!

Get Social @ NJLA Conference

Professional development? Great! Learning opportunities? Awesome! Networking? Stupendous! But what about the fun? 

Leave that to Member Services. Here are their highlights from their committee president Danielle Cesana:

"Monday evening we will be hosting a special trivia after the President’s Program.

Public Policy, Intellectual Freedom and You

Tell the truth -- have you ever looked at the program for NJLA and just skipped over the Public Policy or Intellectual Freedom programs thinking they didn't really apply to you?  Well this year we truly have something for everyone!  In a year with so many issues playing out locally, statewide and federally, do not miss this opportunity to learn and engage with your profession. 

Let's Talk About LUNCH!

Yes, there will be fantastic programs, networking opportunities, after-hours fun, but let’s be real here – you have to eat!  And you’d like to eat well, right?

Well, let me just say, if you are registered for a luncheon, you will certainly eat well.

Getting to Know: Emily Drabinski

Conference is a great opportunity to hear about all of the work your fellow librarians are doing throughout the state, but it's also an opportunity to step out of our borders and see what librarians are doing around the country. We are excited to have librarians from all over this year, and we thought you would introduce you to one from not-so-far-off Brooklyn.

And the Award Goes to...

The NJLA Annual Conference is an event we always look forward to: a chance to meet our colleagues, do some networking, and learn valuable tricks of the trade. But we also love to celebrate the great work that’s been done over the past year by librarians and library supporters all across New Jersey. That’s why the Honors & Awards Subcommittee is busy preparing for the annual NJLA Awards Reception!
