Our resources go far beyond the walls of Plainsboro Public Library. We are connected to larger reference referral networks and inter-library loan services. If we don't have the materials or answers here, we'll borrow them from/ or refer you to places that do!
There are four study rooms on the second floor. They cannot be reserved and are on a first come, first served basis. Each room can comfortably accomodate four people. They are still under the rules of the quiet floor: we ask for no eating or drinking, no cell phone use, and please keep your voice low.
