GOOD NEWS:   Providence Community Library will provide safe, contactless curbside book pickup, by appointment only, on Tuesdays and Fridays between 11:00 AM and 2:00 PM. The book pickups support Rhode Island Governor Gina Raimondo’s statewide April Reading Challenge and are designed to make books available to students in grades K-12 who do not have access to the reading materials they need at home. The service will begin on Tuesday, April 7, in a time window similar to that of the City of Providence’s twice-weekly Grab and Go meal service.

PLEASE NOTE: The Friends March Book Sale/Thrift Store event was cancelled due to caution regarding the corona virus.  We will reschedule the event as soon as it is possible. 

Our Fill A Truck Fundrive (see below) has also been rescheduled to August 5th. As everyone seems to be decluttering while we stay at home, please save all those unwanted things so we can have a successful  event! Please see below what we can use. Thank you!





Help Us Keep Supporting Mt. Pleasant Library

Many thanks to all who have renewed your memberships. We encourage all who have not renewed to help us again this year. We also want to thank those patrons who make separate donations. Every dollar counts, and increases what we are able to fund.

Friend’s Membership.  The Friends have had several very successful fundraisers this past year thanks to all our patrons and the Mt. Pleasant community. We have been able to fund a summer reading entertainer, a membership pass to Roger Williams Zoo, large print and audio books, non-fiction DVDs, an annual Jazz Night and a new carpet for our basement community room that is used on a regular basis.

Also consider:

  • If you order from Amazon please consider using Amazon Smile and choose Mt. Pleasant Library as your charity, Amazon will donate a portion of the sale to the library.
