The Community’s Living Room

The Princeton Public Library is the heart of a vibrant and civically engaged community; a place where people celebrate words, ideas and community every day.

With its prime downtown location adjacent to Hinds Plaza and the Spring Street Garage, the library is ideally situated to welcome thousands of people each day. A world-class collection, expert staff and thousands of engaging programs each year mean that everyone can find something at the library. For more than 100 years, the Princeton Public Library has been changing the lives of Princeton residents.

A Transformed Library for a Digital Future

Today’s Princeton Public Library reflects the values, passions and diversity of our community. We are considered by many to be a leader and innovator for others in the library field. We are proud of our reputation and grateful for the positive feedback we receive every day from those who use the library.

We are committed to maintaining our excellence and will continue to transform our library and services to incorporate the latest developments in information technology, digital content, and new ways of sharing information. We’re your library, continually changing and adapting to bring you the very best that libraries have to offer.
