    Princeton Public Library’s own Timothy K. Quinn has been honored as a Library Journal Mover & Shaker for his exemplary work leading the effort to serve Princeton by re-opening PPL in the wake of Superstorm Sandy. For two days, the Library was the only public facility open in the town.

  2. Hurricane Sandy’s Austerity Lessons →

    “While surely unintentional, this natural disaster has afforded those affected by it a small taste of how countless others around the rest of the world live – and many not just during a crisis, but on a regular basis.”

    My friend Lucine wrote a powerful essay on the importance of “altruism, charity, and solidarity in the face of adversity to guide and inspire us if and when disaster comes along.” A Thanksgiving must-read.
