Providence Public Library is working to bring you engaging media and learning experiences in new and interactive ways, wherever you are.
We're digitizing our special colletions so you can enjoy primary sources whereever you are, and no matter the time of day. Whether you're a scholar, geneaologist, or an arm-chair cultural historian, you'll find pieces of history. No white cotton gloves needed.
As a gateway to knowledge and culture, The Library is using its resources to allow for community created collections. These design and project-based experiences allow learners to tap into their own creativity and add to the Library's collections.
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.
Did you know that 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 enjopy on your desktop, smartphone or tablet.
The Providence Public Library is supported by the donation of funds by users like you. Please donate to support the acquisition and conservation of our materials, and to support digital projects such as this.
