Check out The Buzz

The Buzz is back! Join us every Wednesday at 11 a.m. for weekly informal chats by the Welcome Desk. Princeton Public Library staff members will discuss books, films, technology, apps, articles, and music that we think you should have on your radar. It's also a chance to share what you've been reading, watching, or listening to. Looking for your next favorite novel?

Get in on The Buzz

As library staff, we all love to read, are excitedly curious about new things, and are naturally inclined to share with others what we learn. And of course, we always aim to have our fingers on the pulse of what is popular and “the next big thing.” Starting today, join us every Wednesday at 11 a.m. this summer for The Buzz, a weekly, informal chat that promises to be lots of fun!
