PRINCETON — The Princeton Public Library will present a digital viewing of submissions to its “Princeton in the Lens” online photo show at 6:30 p.m. Thursday.

All photographers who submitted are invited to attend and comment on their photographs if they wish, and the general public is invited to see the work, as well as to meet and mingle. After the showing, refreshments will be served.

“Princeton in the Lens” was the library’s first foray into an online event. Photographers were invited to submit photos taken between Aug. 8 and 31 that showed familiar Princeton landmarks in new or creative ways and work that depicts the many aspects of life in Princeton. The library posted a total of 84 submissions from 16 photographers in the “Princeton in the Lens” albums on the Facebook pages for The Princeton Public Library and Library Cafe at PPL.

“Once again, Princeton shows itself to be a town full of talented people,” said Library Cafe manager Dave Cook, one of the organizers for ‘Princeton in the Lens.’ “We did expand the rules just a bit to allow folks to submit obvious Princeton landmarks, like the Red Covered Bridge, and we decided to look the other way this one time if people didn’t catch that photographs were to be taken within the time frame. We will definitely be doing another online photography program.”

The library is located at 698 E. Peru St. in Princeton. For more information, visit the library’s website,, or call 815-875-1331.
