The Friends of the Princeton Public Library is a volunteer organization of library supporters responsible both for funding many special projects throughout the year as well as supplementing the library’s annual budget with collection, material and infrastructure infusions. The Friends meet several times a year in order to design and implement the multiple annual Book Sales, and guest Speaker Programs. They also provide vital help to the Princeton Public Library staff through a variety of other ways; we continue to be very appreciative of their efforts!
The Friends applaud all literacy efforts, such as:
- Each purchase from the Out of Print clothing website helps to fund literacy programs and book donations to communities in need. It also supports the authors, publishers and artists who made these iconic works an integral part of our lives.
- Babies Need Words Every Day is a resource available thanks to the Association for Library Service to Children. The shareable materials on the website are free of charge and are designed to help parents build their children’s literacy skills.
In 2020, as part of your paid membership dues, you are invited to a special preview of books that will be available for sale at the March 2020 book sale. The preview is Wednesday, March 18, 2020, 4 – 7 pm, in the Book Sale Room at the library. This preview is open ONLY to Friends who have paid their dues by MARCH 15, 2020.
