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!
Come for the hors d'oeuvres and refreshments, stay for the suspense: Who are our Rising Stars? Who were our Library Champions in 2016? And whose name will appear on the Librarian of the Year plaque? We’re also proud to be announcing the College & University Awards at the event this year, for the first time. There is so much to celebrate throughout our state!
All questions will be answered on Tuesday, April 25, from 6-8 p.m. in Wildwood 1! Attendance is free and open to everyone, but don’t forget that early bird conference registration ends April 1 and the chance to register online ends on April 10. (Yes, you can still register for Conference on-site.)
The Awards Reception will also observe NJLA’s 125th anniversary. NJLA President Chris Carbone and Executive Director Pat Tumulty will offer a toast and some remarks to commemorate this grand occasion. Thanks to NJLA’s 125th Anniversary Committee for their help in putting this year’s event together – you might even find some special treats at your seat!
See you all in Atlantic City!
