Princeton area knitters recently celebrated Worldwide Knit in Public Day without controversy. Witness our photos on Flickr. It's a safe bet that we'll have Ravelympians in the Community Room for the Olympic viewing sessions in July and August. Who says knitters are quiet, mousy souls? Not the U.S. Olympic Committee, apparently.
You probably know that the library has a vast selection of books, audiobooks, and DVDs for all ages...but did you know that we also have video games?

It’s not Dickens, but it is a doozy. J.R. Moehringer’s memoir, “The Tender Bar,” sets the stage for the inaugural meeting of Books on Tap. This new book group led by librarian Kristin Friberg convenes at the Yankee Doodle Tap Room at the Nassau Inn on Tuesday, June 26th at 7 pm.
When you walk in or out of the library lobby this Wednesday, June 20, you will be unlikely to miss the 2012 Princeton Public Library Reading Filibuster. Staff and the public (pre-registration is encouraged) will be taking turns reading the book “The Phantom Tollbooth,” the children’s classic by Norton Juster, starting with its first page at 9:30 a.m.
As of April 6, 2012, this article on ZDNet.com reports there are over 600,000 apps available for your iPhone! Looking at mine, I only have 63 currently loaded, but I would estimate I've downloaded hundreds over the past two years, both paid and free. Overall, there are only a few apps that I use on a regular basis. Today I'll review which apps I typically use in a few different categories.
Learning a new language is a popular sport in Princeton, for adults as well as children. We now have a new digital kid on the block to help teach languages to children.
