  • The Princeton Public Library is a very attractive building, inside and out. It is located in the "heart" of Princeton, not too far from Nassau Street. We easily found metered parking just a block...

  • The library has many books to chose. But, their special programs are always informative and interesting. Love when the library and McCarter present a dual program.

  • Very neat and clean, well organized library. It is spread over two floors with a special section for children. The best part is that the library is open seven days a week. Plenty of reading space with chess and puzzle tables, scanners, computers, printers and digital search stations placed all over the library. It is open to the public but books can be issued only by members.
  • This is one of the best and most well thought-out public libraries I’ve ever encountered. There are multiple study areas, both indoor and outdoor patio and balcony seating areas, a beautiful Children’s Library with multiple computers in which children can play, work, work and learn. The adult section also has multiple computers and all areas have amazing and friendly staff. There’s also a small cafe to meet any snacking needs.
