    Be the change: TEDxYouth

    Ask a teenager, “What is your unique vision for the future?” It’s no surprise that local teens have answers to this question and want to share their thoughts, dreams, and plans with the community. As part of Princeton Public Library’s TEDxYouth event, “Imagine the Future,” on November 16, we have eight teens presenting talks about their passions and showcasing their visions for how their generation can change the world for the better.

  • The Art of the Steal

    The Art of the Steal

    Our DVD collection is amazing. From the latest feature and foreign films to television series and documentaries, it's easy to browse the shelves on a regular basis and come across 50 items I want to check out all at once. I recently watched a film that was so engrossing, I thought I would share my pick with you.

  • Window shopping

    Window shopping

    One of the greatest things about Princeton is that it's a walkable town. As anyone who has lived almost anywhere else in the United States could tell you this is a rare and wonderful thing. About a month ago, I was taking advantage of the walking possibilities here and came across a fantastic outer-space themed display at my favorite toy store, jaZams. As I was window shopping I had a "eureka!" moment: I should use my ground floor window space at the library to promote some of our new and amazing acquisitions!

    Changing spaces

    If you haven’t had the opportunity to visit the third floor of the library recently, you are in for a big surprise. Quite a few wonderful changes have taken place recently, changes we think everyone young and old will approve. This renovation has taken one of the most special areas of the library and made it all the more magical.

    History lost and rediscovered

    Did you know that you can ask the library to purchase a book for our collection? This is exactly what I did this summer. In June, I visited Jamestown, Virginia. In the gift shop I found the book, “Jamestown, the Buried Truth,” written by Dr. William Kelso, Jamestown’s head archaeologist.
