Reopening: Phase Three!

Some big changes are coming with phase three!

You will no longer be able to make a browsing appointment... because the library will be open for people who want to browse all our books, DVDs, and other items, without a time limit. Everyone in the building must wear a mask and practice social distancing.

For patrons who would like to continue minimizing their time in public spaces, Curbside Pickup is going to keep rolling, same as it has been working since May.

Finally, we are now booking appointments for computer use! You can make a 30-minute appointment between 12-6pm Mon-Thu and 10am-1pm Fri-Sat. The printers and copy machine will also be available. Only 3 computer stations are available at a time and will be sanitized by our staff after every appointment.

Kids Reading Across RI

Miss Alyce is going to run a book discussion about Changeling by William Ritter on August 19.

Magic is fading from the Wild Wood. To renew it, goblins must perform an ancient ritual involving the rarest of their kind—a newborn changeling. But when the night arrives to trade a human baby for a goblin one, something goes terribly wrong.

We have 12 copies of the book available! You can register for the group with Miss Alyce
