    A community of readers

    This month in a Kirkus Reviews interview, our readers’ services librarian, Kristin Friberg, gives her thoughts about our Princeton-centric corner of the publishing industry. We’re very pleased to see our library’s readers’ advisory services and the broader local reading community recognized as a trend-spotting mecca in one of the premier journals previewing books before their publication.

    These are a few of our 65 Things

    In a town of lifelong learners, we have the perfect post-holiday free event on Saturday from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. 65 Things at 65 Witherspoon will offer you a chance to learn something new. Now, we're not talking about closed and exact differential forms in multivariable calculus or the influence of Gongora's "Soledades" on the poetry of the Latin American Vanguard. We're skewing toward the practical here.

  • Top 10 music CDs of 2014

    Top 10 music CDs of 2014

    The end of the year is fast approaching and the world is awash in "Best of 2014" lists. I'm sure you have seen plenty of lists for best books, music, movies, and TV shows by now. Please indulge me as I present another list for 2014: the most popular CDs of the year at the library. The ranking is based on the total number of circulations (a.k.a. check-outs) for the following titles. It's interesting to note that CDs remain very popular here despite all the newer ways people listen to music. Please also indulge me some brief editorial comments about the music on this list.

    All we want for Christmas is this

    Standing in line under an umbrella with my daughter waiting for Santa, her nose met mine. People roamed the streets, giving out candy canes and small stuffed animals. No one gave her one. "I want to be shorter, again."
