Providence Community Library CELEBRATES 1ST BIRTHDAY ON JULY 1st !
Has it already been a year? It may be hard to remember, but one year ago the fate of Providence’s neighborhood libraries was uncertain. Providence Community Library was planning to take over management of the nine libraries and keep them all open for the benefit of all the people of Providence, but there remained a number of critical open issues that had to be addressed. Luckily for all, and thanks to the hard work of many, those issues were successfully addressed and our nine neighborhood libraries all opened their doors on July 1, 2009.
To celebrate that anniversary, Thursday, July 1st will be a Fine Amnesty Day for overdue materials. Patrons can return overdue materials at any of PCL’s nine neighborhood locations throughout Providence and our Library Police will waive your late fees! This applies to materials that have not yet gone to a collection agency and are brought in-person to the circulation desk.
In addition to waiving fines all day long, PCL and our nine Friends groups will be having a birthday cake cutting at each of our locations at 4:30pm! Each library will be having various events and entertainment.
