In late March 2017, Princeton Public Library opened its spectacular and newly renovated second floor, 2Reimagine, which is designed to support the ways that people learn, work, and collaborate in the 21st century.

Librarians Erica Bess and Janet Hauge return to highlight the spaces, collections, services, and technology you will find there, including increased power and data connectivity, screen-sharing software, integrated AV, digital collections, a state-of-the-art Technology Center, and more.
