April 3rd-9th is National Library Week, but the Princeton Public Library will be celebrating all month. We are taking this opportunity to remind the public of all of the great services we offer. The library is stepping up its marketing efforts by publicizing our message on billboards, in the newspapers and at the Apollo. The ads are intended to point out all of the different things that libraries provide.
Of course we have books, but libraries offer so much more. Not only do they provide a comfortable place in the community to meet and hang out, they offer services most people don’t know about. Our lives have changed and libraries have embraced those changes and adapted to the needs of our patrons.
• Niche Academy offers short videos highlighting some of the subscriptions we have for our patrons, like Ancestry.com and Newsbank, plus tutorials on using e-books and audio books. Checkout our Video of the week on the website.
• Free wi-fi throughout the building extending out to our parking lot.
• Copying, faxing, scanning and laminating. •Transferring patron’s old video to DVDs.
• People can check out a variety of items, including DVDs, magazines and hotspots.
• Our collection serves every age group and interest, from picture books to large print and books on CD.
• Library programs and crafts for children and adults.
• Great spot for enjoying a cup of coffee at our cafe.
Stop in on National Library Worker’s Day, Tuesday April 5, to check us out. We will have a gift for the first 50 guests. In addition, the Friends of the Princeton Public Library are joining the celebration by hosting a tea on Wednesday from 3:00-6:00.
