We Did It!

We did it! With 99% precincts reporting, the NJ Library Construction Bond Act has passed with 903,584 votes in favor. Approval of this legislation will result in $125 million in matching funds for capital projects at public libraries in New Jersey. This funding will have a tremendous impact on communities across our great state.
