The JerseyConnect Team has hit the road conducting five regional meetings all over the state to talk about the variety of services offered, provide an in-person demo of the new Managed WiFi service, answer questions about the statewide EVPL contract, and preview some service changes coming this year.

JerseyConnect, a service of the New Jersey State Library, was launched 10 years ago. It is a statewide network connecting libraries and offering technology services at no cost to libraries.  Services include Internet access, website hosting, email hosting, email archiving, spam and virus filtering, and router and firewall management.  A new offering, Managed WiFi, was implemented to aid libraries in statistical reporting for IMLS of the number of wireless sessions provided annually.  So far, 35 library entities, including 5 county systems, have signed on, providing 168 access points.

Meetings have already taken place in Voorhees, Trenton and Middletown. The two remaining sessions are:

Tuesday, March 29 – 10 -11 a.m.

Wayne Public Library

461 Valley Rd., Wayne, NJ 07470

Meeting Room B


Tuesday, April 5 – 10-11 a.m.
