Readers, start your engines

At this time of year librarians are full of excitement and book fever. That's because in spring and early summer two of the biggest book and library conferences occur: Book Expo and the American Library Association Annual Conference. We've been busy meeting authors, listening to publishers and sharing our ideas about the new books of the year.

Princeton’s secret weapon

You are looking at one of the most powerful reading super heroes available in the modern world. Hyperbole aside, there is a little magic and super-heroism in the job that Emma and her owner Joe Turner do for us at the Princeton Public Library. They are our very own Reading Therapy Dog team and they provide an important and heartwarming service to our younger patrons. For children struggling to read, a therapy dog such as Emma can help break a cycle of frustration and failure.
