In setting out to create a new princetonlibrary.org, we decided to go beyond redesigning our existing site. We wanted to reimagine what a library website could be and what it could mean for our customers.
Making it easier to do business with us was the primary goal, but we also wanted to provide a platform for you to discover all that we have to offer. And it all had to be wrapped in an aesthetically appealing package that makes navigation a delight.
I encourage you to take a little time to unfurl our top menu, where even longtime library customers are likely to discover a service or event new to them. Check out our new interactive catalog, where you can get recommendations from our staff, share your thoughts on items in our collection and discover what library customers are reading and viewing in New York, Boston, Seattle and beyond. Visit the new events calendar to find out what’s happening this month at the library. And be sure to visit this blog often for insights from more than a dozen library staffers.
Before you click through to the next beautiful page on our site, I wanted to take this opportunity to thank all the library staff members who worked so hard to make the new site a reality. Special thanks go a donor whose generous gift made much of the new site possible.
Please let us know what you think of the new site. Ultimately, you will decide if this ambitious undertaking is a success.
