    Dear Dr. Aronson,I recently completed the ASLMS program at Rutgers and was a student in your class "Materials for Young Adults." I am pleased to say I have found employment in a school district that values the library/media center and is committed to moving towards a 21st Century curriculum. We have been brainstorming and are interested in visiting a school that has successfully integrated technology and NJCC into a library curriculum. Knowing that you visit many schools I thought I would ask if you can highly recommend any schools (K-5 and middle school) in the Somerset/Hunterdon County area.Thank you for your time,Kate Zaleski
