All CPL locations will close at 5:00 PM on Wednesday, Nov 26 and be closed on Thursday, Nov 27 for Thanksgiving.

Get Involved

Young people in grades 6-12 may earn community service hours by joining the Teen Team/Jr. Friends, which helps to plan teen programs and services and raises funds for the Cranston Public Library.

Meetings are the first Monday of the month from 4:30-5:30. Pizza and refreshments will be served at our meetings. Call 401-943-9080 ext. 121 or email teens@cranstonlibrary.org for more information.

The library also partners with community organizations to offer service projects for teens. Stop by for an hour or two on the weekend to contribute to a worthy cause in a creative way. Past projects have included:

  • making blankets for shelter animals
  • boxing up donated books
  • knitting garments for children in the hospital

Technology for Teens

Teens can use the public computers and printers at any Cranston Library. The Central and William Hall libraries have computers especially for teens in their teen areas. It is also possible for people between 13 and 18 to use laptops in the teen room of the Central library.

The library also offers access to digital video cameras and imovie editing software to teens who participate in the Teens Make Movies programs.

Social Media
