The Providence Journal generously donated a year’s supply of review books to Providence Community Library, and librarians from all nine neighborhood libraries assembled at Wanskuck to divide the spoils. Thanks to the Providence Journal for its very welcome gift!
In August, the PCL Tech services staff reported for duty and moved into their temporary office space at 220 Manton Avenue in Olneyville. Working in Olneyville Tech are Doug Hinman, Deb Furia, Barbara Reddington, Donna Pettigrew, and Cynthia Reed. After years of laboring in a windowless office in Central, they are delighted to have large street-view windows in their new home.
Their desks are assembled, the cartons of unprocessed books and DVDs have been delivered, and they are making steady progress at getting the new materials out to the libraries for distribution to patrons.
Note the BOOK TRUCK donated by Salve Regina! Brown University has also donated a book truck, too.
