A Tough Economy, Even With Friends Backing You Up

At the most recent meeting of the Princeton Public Library (PPL) Board of Trustees, Library Friends President Pam Wakefield reported that the Library Store is losing money, and cannot continue in its present form. The store is currently run by the Friends and is staffed by volunteers.

Library Director Leslie Burger said that three possibilities for the store are currently under discussion. One solution might be a collaboration with the Arts Council, which is not allowed to have a gift shop on its premises. Another would be to lease the store to an outside bidder. A third option would be opening up the space to additional shelves for the Friends’ book sale. Town Topics.
