Cranston Public Library celebrates RI Library Day
Cranston Public Library Schedules Citywide Programs for Rhode Island Library Day
On Saturday, April 16, Cranston Public Library will join libraries across the state in celebrating the second annual Rhode Island Library Day. This event, organized and promoted by the Rhode Island Library Association, marks the end of the weeklong, nationwide celebration of National Library Week (April 10-16).
"Rhode Island Library Day presents Rhode Islanders with a unique invitation to explore and celebrate their libraries," explains Cranston Public Library Director, Edward Garcia. "We're excited to offer the Cranston community a Saturday full of events and offerings, and we look forward to seeing some new faces."
Among many special programs, all open Cranston Public Library locations will participate in Amnesty Day, and will be waiving fines on overdue items returned on the day. (Charges accrued due to damaged or billed materials, however, cannot be waived.)
