The Princeton Public Library has been named the winner of the 2015 Innovation Award from the New Jersey State Library Association for the library’s January how-to festival, “65 Things at 65 Witherspoon.”

Library Executive Director Leslie Burger and Public Programming Librarian Janie  Hermann accepted the award in April at the New Jersey State Library Association annual conference in Long Branch.

“The New Jersey library community is recognized nationwide for being innovative and forward-thinking ” Hermann said. “So to be recognized as innovators among this group is a wonderful honor indeed.”

The “65 Things at 65 Witherspoon” daylong program, during which multiple, simultaneous demonstrations of a  variety of skills and abilities took place throughout the library, was an opportunity  for members of the community to share their talents with others.
