Library Account Category

Select the one category which best describes your patron status. Please note that parts of several other municipalities share Princeton ZIP codes and mailing addresses. In addition, many area subdivisions not within the border of the Municipality of Princeton include the word ”Princeton" in their names. While we regret that we are unable to offer free borrowing privileges to residents of these communities, we can direct you to the public library that serves your local community.

Please use this space to provide more information about your patron status as indicated in the patron status field.

For parents and families

The library allows you to give permission to a family member or designee to pick up your hold items. Please note that the designee(s) will not be able to see the status or list of items borrowed on your account while checking out at the Checkout Desk. Enter the information for each person that you wish to give permission to pick up your holds.
