Friend of the Library Urges "Yes" Vote on Library Construction Bond Public Question


Dear Editor:

I am a Chatham resident and a Board Member of the Friends of the Library of the Chathams.  Obviously a true fan of all Libraries. I would like for all Chatham citizens and residents of New Jersey to vote “YES” on Tuesday, November 7th for the NJ Library Construction Bond Act, supporting libraries across NJ. 

This act authorizes New Jersey to issue bonds in the amount of $125,000,000 for the purpose of the construction, reconstruction, development, extension, improvement, and furnishing of New Jersey’s public libraries. Without a yes vote, these funds will not be distributed.

The Chatham Library is a place that plays a significant role for all members of any community. There is something for everyone. My first experience when I moved to Chatham 11 years ago, was to spend many hours at the Library with my young children. Being new to a community, I knew the Library was a central part of any city or town.  It provides all of the traditional book services such as book-borrowing and lending and so much more. Libraries act as a central meeting place for the community. A place to study and research. A resource for college preparation, job and career assistance, tax and government assistance.  A place with access to computers, meeting space and the internet. The benefits of public libraries are unlimited. Please vote yes to assist the Library of the Chathams and other libraries around NJ to provide the very best in community service.

Friends of the Library of The Chathams Board Members encourage all Chatham residents to vote:


for the NJ Library Construction Bond Act on November 7

This Act could provide funding toward the Library of The Chathams RMR Project to Renovate, Modernize and Reorganize our library within the existing footprint, to make it better, safer, more user-friendly and utilizing all the space effectively.

Spending More Per Pupil Doesn’t Guarantee Additional or Enhanced Success

April 20, 2018

Dear Editor:

At the April 16th Board of Education meeting, Board member Sal Arnuk stated: “I am ashamed to see the district at the bottom of the list in per-pupil spending.”  On the contrary, Board member Arnuk should be exceedingly proud of how our Board of Education is able to consistently be ranked as the top school district in our state at the cost it currently spends per ...
