Thanking All Those Who Supported Beyond Words Event for Library

To the Editor:

The Board of the Friends and Foundation of the Princeton Public Library would like to thank everyone who joined us on October 15 for our 2022 Beyond Words evening to celebrate and support the library. Under a majestic tent at the Brick Farm Tavern, our guest speaker, David Wondrich, a James Beard Award-winning author, regaled us with entertaining stories about the evolution of the cocktail through modern American times. We extend our gratitude to the library’s leadership and staff for making the Princeton Public Library a Five-Star Library for six consecutive years, the highest national ranking by the Library Journal Magazine. 

The success of Beyond Words 2022 event is a reminder of the central role the library plays in our Princeton community. How fortunate we are to have the library as a centerpiece of our town, serving as our gathering place, offering a safe space for our children to learn, and welcoming neighbors and newcomers with a warm sense of belonging. 

Many thanks to Princeton Property Partners, our Lead Sponsor, and Reed Smith, LLP, our Silver Sponsor, along with all of our other sponsors and corporate partners, for their support and belief in the mission of the Friends and Foundation. Only with the loyalty and generosity of all of our donors are we able to continue to support the library in expanding its collections and enhancing its programming. 

A heartfelt thank you from us to all of you. We look forward to joining again this spring for our 2023 Book Lovers Luncheon with author Lynne Olsen. Stay tuned for more details.
