Weather and Emergency Closures

Weather and Emergency Closures

When weather conditions become questionable please visit the library's website for announcements involving closings, delayed openings or program cancellations.

All Cranston Public Library emergency closures will also be posted with the Rhode Island Broadcasters Association at www.ribroadcasters.com (opens in a new tab).

If we are closed for a holiday, snow storm, or other weather event, your lending period will be extended for that day.
