Princeton Public Library

65 Witherspoon
Princeton, NJ

The Princeton Public Library is the heart of a vibrant and civically engaged community; a place where people celebrate words, ideas and community every day. For more than 100 years, the Princeton Public Library has been changing the lives of Princeton residents. The current building, on the corner of Witherspoon and Wiggins Streets in downtown Princeton, was constructed in 2004.

Princeton Festival lectures, previews and films take place in the ground floor Community Room.


Public parking is available in the Spring Street Garage located adjacent to the library. Drivers may enter the lot from Spring Street or through the library access driveway (Sylvia Beach Way) off Wiggins Street. Take a paper ticket when entering. Library card holders can have their tickets validated for up to 2 hours of free parking when they visit the library.


The library is fully accessible, with the ground floor Community Room reached from all public entrances without stairs or ramps.
