  • 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

    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.

    Let's talk politics

    Talking about politics can evoke heated passion, although, if you watched last week's presidential debate, you might say that it could also lead to a mind-numbing headache. If you're looking for a stimulating forum to discuss the current political climate, we have the group for you.

  • Home away from home

    Home away from home

    Recently, Courtney Bayne, one of my Youth Services colleagues, relayed some comments from one of our customers who is relatively new to the Princeton community. We were both inspired to share them here.

    The customer and her family are from Australia and have become regular visitors to the third floor Youth Services department. They are among the many short-term residents Princeton has as a result of the major university at its center and the countless domestic and international businesses flanking its corridors.
