Professional Development

NJASL offers professional development programs for school librarymedia specialists through conferences, workshops, mentoring, online and print publications and resources. Be inspired and learn through collaboration with other school library media specialists! 


NJASL collaborates with other state and national organizations, such as LibraryLinkNJ, the New Jersey Library Association, the New Jersey State Library, and the American Association of School Librarians to advocate for professionally staffed resource-rich school library programs for every student in New Jersey.

NJASL is trying to clarify the rumors about the number of NJ schools without librarians by obtaining real facts. WE'RE CONDUCTING A NJ SCHOOL LIBRARIAN CENSUS to present at the NJ State Board of Education meeting on January 7, 2015. 


Please take 5 minutes to consider your county and school districts. 

Use this to submit the data.

The NJDOE no longer requires schools to report this information, so we cannot do this without your help.


Information you'll need to know to supply the data:

County & School District Names

#of schools & their grade levels

# of certified school librarians & # of school libraries

Job Openings


Please help us gather this information before December 19th so we have time to tally the information you provide.





We gratefully acknowledge our 
2014 Fall Conference Sponsors!
