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.

Each meeting we will talk about computers and coding and will include fun interactive activities. A typical meeting starts with girls reading and listening together from a part of the book. Then, they discuss question that relate to both the book and important concepts, like bravery, resilience, computational thinking and sisterhood. The Club will then take on a creative challenge that relates to the chapter they read – either unplugged or online. Activities will be done both offline with paper and markers and online using programs like Scratch.
