A forum for Princeton residents to express opinions about local and national issues
Question of the Week: "What department in the new library should have priority with funding and why?"
Harry Frankfurt, Mercer Street
"I think that all of these departments require funding because we have a diverse population that would be interested in all of them."
Susan Friedman, Vandeventer Avenue
"I would say children's. I work with children and I have grandchildren I bring to the library and there is not a very conducive environment for reading and introducing them to books the way it is set up here."
Cynthia Lanchester, Mt. Lucas Road
"Well I guess priority should be children's, but from my point of view I'd prefer if it was best sellers. From an educator's point of view there is nothing more important than getting children into the library."
Norman Herzberg, Gulick Road
"I think that most of the collections are very nice and our library has a good selection overall. I have two young kids so I would prefer some emphasis on the kid's collection. I like that they have a lot of the old classics that I read when I was a kid. They have a lot of new stories but every collection can be improved some."
Per Kreipke, Maple Street
