Librarian, Heidi, let me know that there is a nice selection of new children’s books. Be sure to come in and check them out. Also people have been signing up for free help with their taxes. You can either come into the library or call 796-5333 for an appointment with the consultant on February 21 for a time slot of 15 minutes between 1:00 - 6:00 p.m. We are sorry for the sometimes erratic library hours but the library is closed when the school is closed and sometimes there are just circumstances beyond what can be managed. We try hard to give notice on the door when the library will be closed.

The Princeton Parks and Recreation Committee will be having a meeting on Wednesday, January 31 at 6:00 p.m. at the Town Office. This will be the first meeting to start planning for the Fresh Water Festival. If anyone is interested in the planning or helping, please do come to this meeting. Last year the festival went beyond the shirt-tail parade with a full scale one. The group would like to continue to grow this event but help is needed to continue to have this event for our town.

Final reminder about licensing or re-licensing all dogs over 6 months of age. The deadline is Wednesday, January 31. After that a late fee of $25 per dog will be charged. Hours at the town office are: 8:00 a.m. to noon and 12:45 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. M-F.
