  • 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...  more »
  • 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.  more »
  • What an amazing library. I don't live in Princeton but often attend free events and seminars held at this venue and it's the most comfortable library I've ever been too. What an asset to the community!!
  • Library is spacious, well-kept and quiet, and is a wonderful place to do work when you just have to get off campus. Staff are very friendly and patient, and I love the book sale portion near the entrance - it's great to get new reading material while supporting a public institution!
