Princeton grants limited library access to town residents

    Princeton University has announced it will grant limited access to Public Library card holders to its Firestone Library. Very limited access.

    Once a month, four Firestone Library Cards will be available for a 24-hour period for Princeton Public Library users to take advantage of. Residents can’t check out books, but they can study; use computers; and copy, scan and print library materials, the Princetonian reports.

    Student reactions ran hot and cold, from some praising the efforts to reach out to the community, to others concerned townies will take advantage of the four cards all at once and check out the exact books they need. Because Biochem 101 is such a good read.
