Do you have a project you are working on that you would like to share with the community? It could be big or small. Perhaps you need colleagues to weigh in on or vet some ideas. Are you looking for collaborators yourself?

Our Programming Committee would like to invite you to virtually present your project (or projects) to the larger community. We will work with you to select a time that fits your schedule and your needs. If interested, please email Julie Peters: jpeters@smlr.rutgers.edu.

Presenting the first NJSLA Cookbook!

To commemorate our 2020 Virtual Holiday Party and Annual Business Meeting, members were asked to submit their favorite holiday recipes. Please enjoy the first annual NJSLA Cookbook! We’re distributing this now for those who would like to try recipes over the holidays.

Don’t hesitate to send recipes to Emma Moore (emoore@ias.edu) to grow our cookbook! Kudos to Emma for coordinating this  special effort.

Wishing you all a healthy and happy holiday season as we gladly close the books on 2020.
