We have a great community room with a large movie size screen of about 16x16 feet, a state-of-the-art surround sound system, air-conditioning, clean bathrooms close by and a great library cafe that offers coffee, soda and scrumptious food that can be eaten while you watch. For many people, our "community living room" offers better amenities than their own homes, plus you get the excitement of watching with others.

Janie L. Hermann, Librarian, Princeton Public Library, Princeton, NJ
