About Roary

Roary the Lion is part of a Princeton Public Library initiative to encourage reading, writing, and creative play.  We invite children to "adopt"  and care for Roary, reading books, playing games, or participating in other activities.  We encourage all Roary adopters to chronicle his adventures in writings, drawings, or other contributions that will be added to Roary's Journal.

For more information about Roary, please contact the Princeton Public Library Youth Services Department at 609-924-9529 ext. 1240 or
