Services
Curbside appointments are no longer required to pick up materials. When you are notified that an item you have put on hold is available, you will have 7 days to pick up the item in person at the library. You can come any time during our operating hours above.
 
Please be sure to have your library card with you! For the safety of our staff, we will be asking you to hold up your card for us to scan rather than handling your personal materials.
 
Still need a contact-less pick up for safety?  Call (401) 294-3306 x115 or Text us at: 401-592-2898 (401-592-2TXT) to schedule an appointment. 
 
All regular services are available during operating hours. Computers, printing, copying, and faxing are downstairs in the Reference Department. Computers will be available on a first-come first-serve basis for 60 minute sessions. 
 
Due to CDC guidance, magazines and newspapers will be unavailable for reading in library. Magazines, including the most recent editions, will be available for borrowing.
 
All of the library's collections will be available for browsing. Please maintain 6 feet social distance from others while browsing in the library. 

Tables in the Reference Department have been set up for individual studying/working. Select tables are available on a first-come first-serve basis for up to 60 minutes for anyone who needs to complete work, school, or studying in the library. One person per table, please do not rearrange the furniture. Tutoring and other other meetings are not permitted at this time.
 
Meeting rooms and the quiet study room remain unavailable at this time. 
 
Cloth facial masks covering both the nose and mouth will be required for entry in the building and must be worn properly throughout your visit. Face shields are not an acceptable replacement for masks at this time.
