Monday, Aug 1 Happy 15th Anniversary, Princeton Public Library! We’ll have free coffee and lemonade to celebrate our tenure at 698 E. Peru Street! Though the traditional gift for 15 years is crystal, and the modern gift is timepieces, a smile or a reminiscence—and perhaps checking out a great book or a movie—is all we expect from our patrons!

Monday, Aug 1 “Take and Make” Kits: Up-cycled Pill Bottle Containers and DVD Coasters Turn old pill bottles and DVDs into pretty and useful items with a whole new life.  Don’t throw out what you can re-create! We will give you a few supplies to get you started but we are sure you will love these and be able to get creative with your own pill bottles and old DVDs.  Simple, Fast, Cute and Practical. You can pick up your “Take and Make” kits in the main circulation lobby.

Thursday, August 25, 6:00 pm Laura Keyes: Little Fashionista on the Prairie Have you ever found yourself wondering what Laura Ingalls Wilder actually wore during her time on the prairie? If you imagine a parade of calico dresses capped with a pink sunbonnet over braided pigtails cascading down her back, you might want to rethink that. Don’t fret, though – this program is here to help! This illustrated lecture dives into the historic terms of clothing, how Mrs. Wilder used them (correctly or incorrectly) when writing books in the 1930s and 1940s, and some detailed photos of original items. You will also learn all the steps it takes to get into costumes like the ones the Ingalls and Wilder ladies wore.
