The Market Street entrance to the main Library is closed while we work on removing the concrete pad under the brick archway. This work will allow us to widen the lanes under the archway, making it easier to drive through as you are dropping off books and/or driving through.
Please use the High Street entrance to the parking lot while this work is being completed.
We apologize for the inconvenience.
UPDATE: We no longer have eclipse glasses available. We had a limited supply and they went very quickly. You can view the eclipse safely from the Schoonover Observatory; they will be open from 12-4 the day of the eclipse.
Our Stingray Way event has been rescheduled! Join us on Saturday, September 30th as the Newport Aquarium brings stingrays to the main library. Learn all about these awesome sea creatures. It's not quite a trip to the beach, but it's pretty close! No need to reserve your spot, just stop by for one of our 2 sessions in the Memorial Book Room.
