  • My kind of town

    Every year, thousands of book industry insiders converge for Book Expo America, the publishing trade show to discover what's trending in the land of literature; it's a place to mingle with authors, colleagues, and vendors. The change of location from New York's Javits Center to Chicago's McCormick Place lent a new vibrancy to the show, which celebrated its 10-year anniversary. It also gave me the opportunity to discover that Chicago really is my kind of town.

  • It has to work

    Like other sports fans, I often worry that watching and thinking about sports may be selfish and wasteful. I want the time I spend in the stands, watching television, reading articles, or listening to podcasts to have broader significance. I want my appreciation for sports to further my development as a moral being, critical thinker, and leader for meaningful causes.

  • Escape

    Princeton is a wonderful place to live but even Princetonians need to get out once in awhile. The library can help our customers escape to far-off or not so far-off locales with our Travel Collection. This carefully curated collection features guidebooks, large coffee table books, and travel-writing covering every continent on Earth. I was curious to see which destinations are the most popular with our readers so I looked at the check-out statistics for our Travel books. Here are the top 10 most circulated books in the collection.

  • Built to last

    My father was 24 when the U.S. entered World War II, but he wasn't destined for battlefield glory. Nevertheless, there's a lasting tribute to his service to our country during the war. It's docked in Camden and beginning May 21, you'll be able to visit it for free, thanks to our Museum Pass program. It's the Battleship New Jersey.
