The Cotsen Children's Library is located on the main floor of Princeton University's Firestone Library, at the corner of Nassau Street and Washington Road. After entering Firestone, look to your right for a wood paneled wall of glass windows and the entrance door to the gallery.
It's not always easy to park in Princeton! There are two public parking lots close to campus: one on Palmer Square (at the corner of Witherspoon and Hulfish Streets), and another at Spring Street (adjacent to the Princeton Public Library). Metered parking on city streets is usually limited to one or two hours, and overtime and illegal parking regulations are strictly enforced. Meters are in effect every day of the week.
Visitors for the day may park our visitor parking lots (.pdf), Lots 21 and 23. On weekends and evenings, visitors may park in most other lots and garages. This map will assist you with navigating the Princeton campus.
