NJ Library Champions

Back in 2010, the NJ State Library rolled out the NJ Library Champions public awareness campaigns promoting the value of NJ libraries. It supported the NJ Library Associations effort enlisting people to support libraries by becoming a NJ library champion. While this campaigns is not currently active, it can still be used as inspiration to enlist your own local library champions!
