The City of Providence has advised Providence Community Library to close its locations from Saturday, March 14th - Saturday, April 4th. This time period may be extended if Governor Raimondo recommends that schools remain closed for longer than one week. All public schools are closed this week under order of the Governor.

Since we can't be with you in our libraries, here are several useful, fun and informative resources for you during this challenging time.
