Princeton Public Library, 65 Witherspoon Street, Princeton 08542; 609-924-9529; fax, 609-924-7937. Leslie Burger, director. www.princetonlibrary.org.
The executive director of the Princeton Public Library, Leslie Burger, will retire from the organization in January after 16 years on the job.
“This is a bittersweet moment for the Princeton community,” said Kiki Jamieson, president of the library’s board of trustees. “We’re very happy for Leslie as she starts a new chapter of her life, but we will sorely miss her leadership, vision, hard work, and dedication to the Princeton community and public libraries in general.”
The library will search for a successor to Burger, who was credited with modernizing the library and emphasizing technology programs. She raised $25 million in private funds for the library, established a $10 million fund to support innovation, and oversaw the construction of the Sands building in 2004.
Phyllis Marchand, former mayor of Princeton Township, told a reporter that Burger turned the library into “the living room of our community.”
Burger said she and her husband, Allen, will turn their attentions to Library Development Solutions, their library consulting company, after she retires.
