Princeton Public Library is a true gem, even for the non-resident passing through. There's a cafe, a used book store, and plenty of places to sit and enjoy the restful surroundings. I particularly enjoyed the sleek modern areas and the floor to ceiling glass windows.

One of the better and bigger libraries in the area. One of the best features for me is the ability to get a room to meet with a small group.

Elegantly designed spaces for browsing and cozy spots for reading make this the perfect library experience. Wonderful lectures, children's story hours and films bring the community together in this lovely space.

This library doesn't feel like you're average library. It feel brand new although it's not. They just redid the kids floor, which is fit with a lot of modern seating and technology. This library is perfect to come spend an entire day at studying, without...More
