What is this all about?
Save My NJ Library is a movement to save all libraries in the state of New Jersey from being decommissioned, torn down, and sold. The state government has been trying to cut the library budget for over a decade, saying that people and students are able to get more information from the internet. We are out to prove the libraries still serve a large purpose in our communities! They are the backbone of how certain individuals learn. We provide so much more than books these days. Our conference rooms are used to teach and for group activities. If budgets are cut (or worse, the libraries are torn down), where are these people going to go?
How you can help!
SaveMyNJLibrary.org is a grass-roots movement led by people just like you. We hold monthly meetings to discuss the future of the libraries in NJ and ways for us to raise money on their behalf. To get involved, please scroll down and view our calendar to learn more about upcoming events.
We also accept donations at almost all NJ libraries. Our sponsors are the ones who keep this movement alive and we greatly appreciate that!
Soon we will have implemented an online donation page where you can donate from the comfort of your own home and even set up recurring donations!
Why community involvement is important.
Unfortunately, politicians do not see the big picture when it comes to libraries. They look at a library and see a way to cut spending by getting rid of it. For over a decade we have banded together to fight off these politicians and raise money to keep our libraries going strong. New Jersey community involvement is key for keeping this organization going. Please stop by and support your local library by donating and calling your local government official and letting them know you appreciate the services that your local library provides.
