There’s nothing like spending a quiet day in the library, browsing the stacks and maybe finding a new favorite book. But while the small local library you may have grown up with had its own charm, it’s nothing like what can be found in one iconic New Jersey town. Princeton is home to the state’s most famous university and some of its best restaurants – and it may be home to the best library in New Jersey. Three stories tall, with a futuristic exterior that was given a complete revamp in the early 2000s, it’s more than just a place to find books. It’s a library, a bookstore, a cafe, a reading room, and a community center all in one – and new features and attractions are being added all the time.
