Friends Fundraising Events
Throughout the year, the Friends of the Princeton Public Library host a series of fundraising events, from luncheons to private evenings to our annual benefit and auction. Tickets are required for each; all proceeds from these events support the library’s collection of books and materials.

Celebrating Community and the Library
Join us, outside on Hinds Plaza, as we kick off Beyond Words 2021 for a night of connections, community and celebration. Delight in live music, beverages and light fare at this open air event. With ample seating, enjoy an intimate community event that promises to be a gracious gathering of friends and library supporters.
Beyond Words 2021 will continue with two virtual events:
Nov. 12: A thought-provoking virtual conversation featuring journalist and novelist Omar El Akkad, author of the recently-released “What Strange Paradise” and the award-winning 2017 novel “American War.”
Friday, Dec. 3: A lively virtual conversation featuring novelist Jean Hanff Korelitz, author of “The Plot,” “You Should Have Known,” which was made into the acclaimed HBO mini-series “The Undoing,” and “Admission,” which was made into the popular 2013 movie of the same name.
Beyond Words 2021 promises to cultivate your curiosity while supporting our Princeton Public Library. This year we celebrate the extraordinary efforts of our library staff in keeping our community connected, informed and entertained. In addition, the Friends celebrate the generous support of our loyal donors. We hope you will join us at Beyond Words 2021 for a night of connections, community and celebration.
