Library Closings

As recommended by the Rhode Island Department of Health, all public libraries are closed through April 3rd. Please note there will be no fines on any items between March 1 and May 1.

We ask that you hold on to all library items currently in your possession until the libraries reopen.

Also, your ability to place HOLDS on physical items has been disabled, so the system is not overwhelmed when libraries are able to reopen.

We ask for your patience during this time and thank you for your understanding. Stay healthy!
