We have expanded express services to all floors to enable in-person browsing of the collection and additional access to public computers. Express services are intended for short, purposeful visits that we recommend not exceed an hour. Single-use work tables are arranged to reinforce social distancing and are not intended for group work or tutoring. To ensure safety, study rooms will remain closed and all programming will continue to be virtual.

Library Merch

Apparel, drinkware and other items featuring the iconic Princeton Public Library logo are now available for purchase in our store. Proceeds from the sale of library-branded items support collection and programming development.

Museum Pass

Library cardholders are now able to book e-passes to a number of institutions in the tri-state area. Museums, galleries, historical societies and even a spooky penitentiary, this program is fun and educational for the whole family.

Storytime Shorts

Meet Youth Services staff in the Virtual Storyroom for a front-row seat to fun! Read books, sing songs, and more. New videos are posted every Tuesday and Thursday.
