The Providence Public Library is a private, nonprofit corporation providing public library services to the City of Providence and the State of Rhode Island. We provide access to information and opportunities for learning to the community at-large and other libraries by offering materials, staff support, and centers for meeting.


Operating from a reputation for excellence and a history of community investment, the Providence Public Library, a national leader, assures that everyone - every child and adult, every citizen and newcomer, every individual and group, regardless of economic position, neighborhood or native language - will have an opportunity to grow intellectually, to nurture creativity and to achieve their potential. The Library will offer informational and educational services and recreation in both traditional and innovative ways that anticipate the needs of its growing and diverse populations.
