With a valid Ocean State Library card, you can borrow books, e-books, and even stream movies from member libraries. Search the statewide catalog to request books and more and they’ll be delivered to your local branch. Most libraries also have a stash of free and discounted passes to venues like museums that you sign out and return as you would a book. Libraries also host various classes, events, and meet-ups for all ages with topics ranging from cooking to coloring.
