To the editor:

As a New Jersey resident and strong supporter of our local library, I urge all New Jersey citizens to vote "yes" on Tuesday, Nov. 7 for the NJ Library Construction Bond Act, supporting libraries across the state. 

Libraries are increasingly becoming the social hubs of our communities. This act authorizes New Jersey to issue bonds in the  amount of $125 million for the purpose of the construction, reconstruction, development, extension, improvement and furnishing of New Jersey’s public libraries.

The benefits of public libraries are numerous, and the construction, expansion, and improvement of public libraries should be actively promoted to ensure the well-being and success of New Jersey’s citizens.

Vote "yes" in support of the NJ Library Construction Bond Act.
