Happy 100th birthday to the Princeton Public Library. Mary H.and I went to the party in the early afternoon. She’s a long-time denizen of Palmer Square and member of Princeton United Methodist Church, and we had a fabulous time. Here’s a photo sequence, featuring the Princeton High School Stage Band and some of the folks (two-footed and four-footed) who let us make friends with them. Great party!

1 thought on “All-Ages Birthday Party”
Thanks for coming to the birthday party and capturing it so beautifully with your photos. I love the shot of Mary with one of the kids from Stone Soup Circus on stilts. Also, thanks for pointing out all the generous community sponsors who helped support this day. In the end, our grand celebratory weekend did not cost the library a dime and we were able to give the community a party without touching a dime of taxpayer money — something we felt was really important in this economy to achieve. It was a wonderful weekend that will long be remembered by many.
