Welcome to the New Jersey State Library's website.

The New Jersey State Library is committed to empowering people, organizations and government by providing access to information and libraries. As leader of the more than 2,000 member libraries in the NJ Library Network, the State Library takes a proactive and innovative approach in guiding libraries and providing information to foster a literate, productive and competitive New Jersey. NJ Libraries are also stepping up to help job seekers and small business owners during tough economic times.

We encourage you to learn more about our three bureaus: State Library Information Center, Library Development Bureau and the Talking Book and Braille Center. Each one has a distinct role in serving state government, libraries and the residents who call New Jersey home.
