I visit this library with my grandmother and sometimes my grandfather will go too. The staff are wonderful to deal with very helpful. Especially tahomi the security guard. She’s always so happy and greeting customers with a warm friendly hello and a pretty smile. When I go in she always greets me with a “ hi friend” how are you and when we leave it’s always “goodbye friend” “ thank you have a nice day see you next time. The selection of Materials is very good you can usually find what you need if not talk to the nice lady or man at the reference desk and they’ll order it for you.
I checked out the lullaby girl cd and the cd feel what you feel a week before my grandmother passed away and they really helped me get through that I’m so glad you guys have both of those cds.
I would recommend this place
See you all soon

the best run library I have ever been to.They have everything you would ever need to have in order to get a good book, use a PC,everything is made for the user of a library to be easy to find and use. A great New book section and a kids section that is like outstanding. It makes children want to be here. Adults are blown away by how friendly it is to use and the staff is just great. They know everything about their place. Just ask and they will have the answer. Very good parking in front. Modern,up to date inside.
A true dream for a person who wants a good library. You have found it here. Can not say enough good things about this place. The grandkids love it and my older kids still come here when they are in town.

A really great place to visit! Friendly, helpful and knowledgable staff. Computers, books, CDs, DVDs, media.

One of the best libraries in the state, if not the best!

Highly recommended.

I go here with my young children as well as solo. There is a wonderful community room you can reserve as well as a seminar room. They have two day loaner DVDs as well as books. Staff are knowledgeable and, mostly, friendly and helpful.

Small well-run place with great staff. If they don't have it, they'll get it in for you in no time. They have activities for all ages.

An excellent and personable reference staff have helped me track down obscure documents from libraries across the country. The tech room has equipment for digitizing video and audio cassettes, vinyl LPs, and extracting data from obsolete floppy disks. As with all RI libraries--what can't be found on premises can be ordered from wherever it exists. There are training courses for aspiring IT professionals, and RIFLI is in house to provide literacy services. Everything you need in a library.
