We’re digitizing our special collections so you can enjoy primary sources where ever you are, and no matter the time of day. Whether you’re a scholar, genealogist, or an arm-chair cultural historian, you’ll find pieces of history. No white cotton gloves needed.
E-books, Audiobooks & Streaming Video
LOTS of eBooks are available through our library’s e-resources — free of charge, just like the printed books you find at the Library. Visit Ocean State Libraries E-Zone to download eBooks, audiobooks, and stream movies to enjoy on your desktop, smartphone, or tablet.
The Library offers free technology classes for the public that are free and open to anyone, no matter the level of knowledge or experience, whether for personal productivity or professional application. Learn to use a new device, or get up to speed with the latest app.
