It’s all good!
We have been fortunate to have earned several grants lately, and we’d like to share our good news with you! The library has been awarded a Rhode Island Legislative Grant to help subsidize the library programming expenses as we continue to create and schedule events designed to serve both adults and children. We’d like to extend our appreciation to Senator Bridget Valverde of East Greenwich for aiding us in procuring this funding.
In addition to this legislative grant, the library has been awarded a Summer Reading Mini-Grant through the Office of Library and Information Services to be used towards expanding our programming for all ages over the summer.
All are invited to participate in this virtual meditation program, sponsored and hosted by the Friends of East Greenwich Free Library. This event takes place every Monday between 6 and 7:30 pm. Beginners and those more experienced with meditation are welcome. This program is free and open to the public. Please contact [email protected] for a link to the meeting invitation.
Dates: Mondays May 10, 17, 24, 31, 6 to 7:30 p.m.

AND WHAT’S COMING UP
Here at the library, we are looking ahead to the end of the school year and a summer full of fun! Besides our usual full complement of books, videos, computer access and research assistance, we are joining forces with the East Greenwich’s Community Services Department to create some safe outdoor fun for this summer. More details will be available soon. Also, the Children’s Department is hard at work redesigning the Children’s Room. While we have certainly missed having the space open to the public, we look forward to welcoming children back in the near future better than before.
