  • My kids love this public library. The storytimes are well-done by the children's librarian. The second floor is entirely dedicated to children, and also includes a separate play room with high-quality toys for creative play. The downstairs level has a little cafe where you can get your fix of hot coffee and croissants, sandwiches, salads.
  • As nice a town library as you could find anywhere. Large collection, and they will order essentially anything you request. A great children's floor with a fish tank. Good meeting spaces available to the public and many excellent programs and presentations.
  • The model of public libraries. Clean, organized, with nice artworks and engaging events, and a big book selection. They also have a cafeteria on the first floor.
  • Great library, just redid the second floor - looks great!
  • Add ten more stars! Does anyone remember "The World's Largest Outdoor Salt Water Pool in Northern New Jersey"? Well, the Princeton Library is neither that big nor that wet. But it certainly is in the running for world's best-appointed municipal library in a university town in north central New Jersey. The book sale room, from the standpoint of this non-borrower, is paradise.
