    Looking forward to the Princeton Children's Book Festival

    I can hardly believe it's September already. Where did the summer go? September brings us back to school time, crisp fall days and our annual Princeton Children’s Book Festival. For one amazing afternoon, authors and illustrators gather on the Hinds Plaza and our community comes to together to celebrate children’s literature.

    Grown-ups for Gaiman

    "Childhood memories are sometimes covered and obscured beneath the things that come later, like childhood toys forgotten at the bottom of a crammed adult closet, but they are never lost for good." There are things that surface that take us by surprise and, at the same time, wash over us like a warm stream of water, transfixing, and transporting us to moments we thought were lost.

    Due back later

    Borrowing downloadable titles to read, listen or watch from our elibrary collections is convenient, day or night, at home or on the road. Check out from your device app or your browser without visiting us in person. In fact, you loved the e-book (audiobook, album, movie) you downloaded so much that you stayed up late into the night to finish. Now you’re ready to borrow more. How do you return that title before it is due and automatically deleted from your device?

    Bonding over films

    As my daughter packs for her first semester of college, I've become a little sentimental and have thought about some of the special times we've spent together recently. We have visited The Guggenheim Museum, The Frick Collection, the Cape May Zoo and downtown Cape May. We've gone out to eat, walked in parks, and, of course, done more than a little shopping together.

    Getting to brighter days

    For many, the challenges of life are what make the day exciting; for others, those same challenges can seem dreadfully insurmountable. While the quest for that ever-elusive answer to why things are the way they are can be debilitating at times, maybe comfort comes in knowing that you are not alone. The Princeton community is filled with resources to support you and those you care about when facing struggles of mental illness, grief, loss, and other hardships.

    At our third annual Salsa Slam last night, mellow, tradtional, old-school salsas prevailed over flashy and spicy varieties — and when all of the tasting and voting were over, two newcomers walked away with the top prizes.

    Book ahead with The Goldfinch

    I'm on page 31 of "The Goldfinch." Only 753 pages to go until the meeting of the library's fiction book group in November. That translates to a solid three months to complete my journey into the Pulitzer Prize-winning novel that's received more than its share of attention.
