The place was modern had all types of books and even had a cafe inside. The library can be noticed for its quiet and relaxing feel to it.

This one of my many trips to this wonderful library. My grandchildren live in Princeton and I have made many trip there to get new books. It has a great place to get a little snack. I would say it is a must for every School Teacher so they can go back home and make suggestions.
