    Calling all students: be a trashion star!

    The Princeton Environmental Film Festival is just over a month away, and the library is already gearing up with some excellent programming to complement the screenings and discussions taking place. We are excited to announce the first ever PEFF Trashion Show - a fashion show of original designs made from items that would otherwise have been discarded or recycled - on Saturday, March 28, at 6:30 p.m. in the Community Room. And Princeton-area students, we need you to help us make it spectacular.

    Turning garden dreams into reality

    The first week of February is here, and Punxsutawney Phil tells us the news that spring will not be arriving early and we must endure six more weeks of winter. The Friends of the Library have turned their minds towards spring, and, with it, one of everyone’s favorite warm weather activities – gardening.

    Chasing EC

    In the ephemeral world of social media, weeks can seem like centuries. So you may have missed our mini social media push to get Elvis Costello to appear on Hinds Plaza on April 18 in a Record Store Day event with Princeton Record Exchange.

    An eye on children's book prizes

    People clamor over the Golden Globes and the Oscars, but librarians, especially youth services librarians wait, rather impatiently, for the names of the children's book award winners, which are announced at the American Library Association's midwinter conference. This year's event will take place on February 2 from McCormick Place in Chicago and will feature the winners of the Caldecott, Newbery, Sibert, and Coretta Scott King awards.

    A community of readers

    This month in a Kirkus Reviews interview, our readers’ services librarian, Kristin Friberg, gives her thoughts about our Princeton-centric corner of the publishing industry. We’re very pleased to see our library’s readers’ advisory services and the broader local reading community recognized as a trend-spotting mecca in one of the premier journals previewing books before their publication.

    A new year & new tech classes

    The spring series of technology classes begins next week with an introduction to Evernote on Monday, January 12th at 7 p.m. With many students starting college classes in mid-January, we know this class will be a popular one.
