Labyrinth Books: How a vibrant bookstore connects campus and community
by Susan Promislo, Office of Communications
For nearly a decade, Princeton University has worked with Nassau Street retailer Labyrinth Books to offer an independent community bookstore for students, faculty, staff and local residents alike. University Services Assistant Vice President Andrew Kane provides an overview of why the University collaborates with Labyrinth and how that relationship has grown to satisfy the scholarly and curiosity-driven needs of the campus community, local residents and visitors to Princeton.
"Among other things, Princeton's ongoing collaboration with Labyrinth Books establishes a stable platform for creative initiatives to continuously improve the service that Labyrinth provides to Princeton students, faculty and staff," Kane said. "From the University's perspective, the value of having Labyrinth Books as a neighbor comes from our shared commitment to ensuring that all Princeton students have affordable and convenient access to the course materials they need to succeed. Further, Labyrinth's vibrancy as an academic, scholarly bookstore enriches the educational and cultural life of University audiences, local residents and visitors to Princeton."
