Engage Princeton grew from the Princeton Public Library’s deep commitment to being at the heart of a civically engaged community.

We believe that there are many ways to build community and we want to do what we can to make people feel welcome and empower them to connect with each other and different groups and organizations.

Finding different ways to connect with our community (through friendship, neighborliness, work, civic engagement, interest groups) make our community stronger and more resilient.

This website has a Community Resource Guide, Engage Princeton events, and a Recipe Sharing initiative.


Engage Princeton is an annual event where community members can interact with representatives of community, municipal and non-profit entities and learn about opportunities to collaborate with them.

Community Resources

The following list includes boards, commissions and non-profit organizations working on a variety of issues that matter to the Princeton community. The list is searchable by specific interest or whether the organization is currently seeking volunteers.
