I Say, Jolly Good Show, Princeton!!

Attendees wore their royal-type finery.

A reporter was writing her
story while still in the library.
Quick shout-out to the hard-working, risk-taking staff from my home state's own Princeton (NJ) Public Library. They embraced a last-minute idea and threw a Royal Wedding party at 5a.m. (Eastern time) this morning so locals could gather for tea & scones and watch the big event on a big screen. 

Of course, they were savvy enough to make sure this got great media coverage. 

Princeton Packet was one that covered it ahead of time.

Staff member / organizer Janie Hermann reported that The Trenton Times was there too, and even TV station News 12 NJ! 

Library director Leslie Burger (also a former ALA president) was on hand as well. See more photos of the event on the library's Facebook page. 

What did your library do to mark the big occasion?
