STATE OF THE ART FACILITIES

Thanks to both the support of our community and grants from organizations such as Studio Rhode, we have been able to grow our offerings to our members. Some of these features include:

These are just a few ways in which our library is embracing our role as a community hub that empowers its residents to be both active learners and creators.

ADDITIONAL SERVICES

Our prime resource is our extensive catalog, which you can explore through our website. With our connection to the Ocean State Libraries catalog, you can browse our collection, you can check the status of any desired title, add it to your wish list, or request an inter-library loan if we don’t have it. As long as you have your library card available, our entire catalog is at your disposal.

Having accurate, credible, valuable sources is crucial to any research paper or project you may be involved in. With our rich, extensive catalog of the top research databases available, you’ll be able to access information ranging from medical research to history and literature, with everything in between. All you need to access these databases is your library card, and then you’re ready for your research. Feel free to explore our databases whenever you want.

One of the benefits of being a member of our library or having an Ocean State Libraries card is having access to our museum passes. Funded by the Friends of the Woonsocket Harris Public Library, we have discount passes available for the Mystic Aquarium, Roger Williams Zoo and more.

Reading can be a relaxing and solitary experience, but it can also serve as a fun, invigorating social activity where you can share your enthusiasm and love of reading with other members of the community. Our book club meets the third Wednesday night of every month and we welcome new members with open arms. Visit our page to find out what the book of each month is and join our club!

Woonsocket Harris Public Library is so much more than a place to check out a new book. We offer a wide variety of activities and events for children, teens, and adults. We have speakers, themed nights, and all different clubs that welcome new members. No matter your age or interests, you are sure to be able to find a great fit on our calendar.
