Public library trustees have the opportunity to make meaningful contributions to the quality of life of their communities. Now more than ever before, New Jersey's public libraries rely on the wisdom, insights, diligence, and influence of their trustees. This site is designed to provide information and resources to guide trustees in their work as they promote the strength and stability of their libraries and as they advocate for support at all levels of government.
