Auburn Public Library Association
The Auburn Public Library Association founded the Auburn Public Library in 1888. In 1968, the Association turned its assets over to the city as the Cranston Public Library system was formed. Since then, the Association has continued to support the Auburn Branch. The board meets three times a year. Membership dues and donations supplement the branch's materials budget and have also purchased computers and furniture over the years. For more information, contact Board President Sue Abbotson at email@example.com or call or contact the branch by phone at 401-781-6116, or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org. Membership forms are available at the Auburn Branch, or print one below and mail it to: Auburn Library, 396 Pontiac Ave., Cranston, RI 02910.
Knightsville Library Association
The Knightsville Library Association was incorporated in 1927 for the purpose of providing library services to the Knightsville community. Later that year, the Knightsville Branch Library opened in a storefront on Cranston Street. In 1957, the Association realized that extended library services were needed. Through their fundraising efforts and property donated in memory of Gerard Ruggieri, a new library was constructed in its present location and opened in 1962. The Knightsville Library Association continues to be an active community organization, supporting and raising supplemental income for the Knightsville Branch Library. For more information, contact Gerard Zannella at 401-942-4452.
