Federal Money To Be Used To Revamp Part Of Providence Library

In Providence, the library system got a big infusion of federal money.

Senator Jack Reed and Congressman Seth Magaziner bringing a 700-thousand-dollar check for the creation of community space to enhance learning for kids.

“Rhode Island’s tremendous network of public libraries offer much more than books – they are places for the community to gather, access critical services and resources, and provide opportunities for Rhode Islanders to explore and develop new interests and passions,” said Senator Reed, a senior member of the Appropriations Committee and the leading champion of public libraries in the U.S. Senate. “This investment in the Providence Public Library will help keep the building modern and inviting to the public and ensure that PPL can continue offering top-notch resources, events, and services for the community.”

“Thousands of Rhode Islanders visit the Providence Public Library each year to study, work and learn, and they deserve nothing but the best facilities and community spaces,” said Rep. Seth Magaziner. “I am proud to help secure federal funding to upgrade the library to a 21st century facility that will be used to host more events and programs that serve people across our state.”

The current community space in Providence hasn't been usable for years.
