We’re kicking off Summer Reading by bringing a bit of the wild to Princeton. Northern Illinois Raptor Rehabilitation and Education will bring a number of live, non-releasable birds of prey to the library at 1:00 pm on Saturday, June 11. This is educational and entertaining event is open to the public without registration and will take place in the main circulation area of Princeton Public Library.
