Kid Zone



Storytime is being held virtually as we are unable to host face-to-face programming during COVID restrictions. You can watch a new storytime each Tuesday morning at 10:30 am on the Princeton Public Library Facebook page.


While we are now allowing adult patrons to browse the collection in the afternoons, unfortunately, we are not allowing children under 12 beyond the main Circulation desk as a Covid-19 precaution. To help streamline your browsing (and to give your child a chance to see what is new on our shelves), here is a list of recent additions to the Youth Services collection. Princeton Public Library staff is also happy to make recommendations and put together book bundles for your family!

You can place a hold on any of these titles via PrairieCat, request them by phone 815-875-1331, ext. 220 or by e-mail .


Princeton Public Library would like to thank the Friends of the Princeton Public Library for their generous support. In past years, in addition to the Friends, we’ve reached out to other community businesses as summer reading sponsors. This year, however, we felt that we should limit the budget to the amount that the Friends had already set aside for the summer reading program, given the economic stresses due to the pandemic and reduced opportunities for participation in programming and summer reading events. We would also like to thank the Arts of Starved Rock Country Fund for supporting Dan Laib’s virtual program Digging Deeper into Your Imagination: Magic & Art Show by Dan Gogh (funds for this Community Arts Access Grant are partially supported by the Illinois Arts Council and the National Endowment for the Arts).
