The New Jersey State Library has a new initiative to encourage people to support libraries in these tough economic times. It won't cost you a dime to join the ranks of hockey star, Zach Parise and author Janet Evanovich, well-know NJ Library Champions. Click here to sign up for email alerts and news about the state of libraries in our state. Here is the explanation from the NJ State Library website:
'Library Champions are people who love their libraries and want to be in the know about issues that may affect them. Library Champions' email addresses will be entered into a distribution list. When important library issues arise, we will email Library Champions. The Champions can then take appropriate action such as phone calls, emails to legislators or simply talking up the library to their neighbors. Any information you provide on this form will only be used to send you occasional emails about library issues. We will not sell your personal information or use it for any other purposes.'
Read the Sports Illustrated article about NJ Devil #9 Parise and how he ended up shilling for libraries instead of more profitable sportswear makers. Librarians think it's cool Zach's on our side. Thanks and happy reading!
