Friends of Princeton Public Library Thank Supporters of Beyond Words 2020 Fundraiser

To the Editor:

A heartfelt thank you from the Friends of the Princeton Public Library for the support of our amazing community for our Beyond Words 2020 fundraiser. On January 9th, we concluded our three-part speakers’ series with Kate Andersen Brower, the author of Team of Five: The Presidents Club in the Age of Trump, in conversation with Princeton University Professor Kevin Kruse.

Considering recent events and the upcoming inauguration in Washington, D.C., our timing was impeccable.  Kate Brower’s insights into the presidency, past presidencies, and life in the White House could not have been more timely and relevant. Coupled with the highly engaged participation from our patrons that we have grown to expect (and love), the event was proof again of the central role the Princeton Public Library plays in cultivating the curiosity of our community. 

We look forward to the day when we can gather once again in person for a Friends Evening or, hopefully, Beyond Words 2021. Until then, thank you for the unwavering commitment of our sponsors and supporters.  Our ability to help the Library expand its collections, enhance its programming, and support its staff is all the more important during these challenging times. 

Thank you for being a Friend.
