MASK UPDATE DECEMBER 20, 2021: Per OLIS recommendations for all public libraries, staff and patrons visiting the library must wear a mask in public spaces regardless of vaccination status. Karen Mellor, Chief of the Office of Library and Information Services recommends that libraries follow the guidance for retail due to our public-facing operations. OLIS recommends that libraries follow an across the board indoor masking requirement, regardless of vaccination status for equitable treatment of all individuals.
MASK HEALTH EXCEPTIONS: The following categories of people are exempt from the requirement to wear a mask:
- A child under the age of 2 years;
- A person with a disability who cannot wear a mask, or cannot safely wear a mask, for reasons related to the disability.
The Woonsocket Library was awarded a grant by the RI Office of Library and Information Services using funds from the Institute of Museum and Library Services to digitize our collection of the Woonsocket Call newspapers from 1900-1960. Access to the library’s archives is free and can be used from any internet connection. You do not need a library card to use our archive site. Please click here to visit the Woonsocket Call Archives.
