Princeton Public Library Adds Nature Explorer Backpacks for Adults to Library of Things

(PRINCETON, NJ) -- Adults considering hiking as a way to get outdoors, enjoy nature and get some exercise can borrow a backpack featuring basic essentials and more from Princeton Public Library. Eight backpacks for adults have been added to the Library of Things collection of nontraditional circulating library items available to borrow. In addition, six more backpacks for youth have been added to the collection, bringing the total available to borrow to 12.

Made possible by a private donation in the name of the donor’s grandchild, the “Nature Explorer” backpacks feature a compass, binoculars, magnifying glass, field guides and information about Princeton open spaces to visit. Princeton Public Library cardholders may borrow the backpacks for a two-week period by visiting the Lending Desk on the first floor of the library.

The Library of Things supports Princeton Public Library’s mission to engage, inspire, educate and unite. Additional items available to borrow include Chromebooks, computer media kits, mobile hotspots, portable power stations and many more.

Princeton Public Library is located at 65 Witherspoon in Princeton, New Jersey.  Hours are Tuesday to Thursday from 10:00am to 8:00pm; Fridays and Saturdays from 10:00am to 6:00pm; and Sundays from 1:00pm to 6:00pm.
