Princeton library is a good resource. But it is so hard to find parking at a reasonable rate that it can make the trip difficult. Library is well stocked and has a pleasant cafe. Even though the library is in Mercer County, it does not participate in the Mercer County system. Feels a tad arrogant.

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.

I'm in town for the summer and needed to find a place to work - loved it! If you are not a card holder you can get a guest pass to use the computers for 2 hours. I've worked in many public libraries and had no computers which were as up to date as here. There is an excellent little... More

It has everything you'd expect in terms of books and nooks to read them. But the meeting rooms that can be booked in advance for you and your guests are a standout. There is also a constantly renewed collection of good used books for sale at very low prices. Free wi-fi. Comfortable chairs. And right in downtown Princeton - plenty... More

A wonderful library with rooms that can be reserved for group study, a quiet room, and a fanciful children's library on the third floor.

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.
