Tiverton Public Libary

Tiverton, RI


Tiverton Public Library is split up into two branches: the Essex and Union Branches, each featuring their own hours and activities. Reader’s Corner reading groups, which consist of book discussions centered on new titles each month, are held at both branches of the library. Essex and Union focus on separate titles, and hold their reading group meetings on different days of the month. Unique to the Tiverton Public Library are the weekly Computer Drop-In Sessions, in which people of all ages receive one-on-one assistance learning new computer and program skills, including Internet basics, social networking and navigating Microsoft Office programs. The library is also part of the OSL library network.

Children’s programs and activities include Books & Babies, which aims to immerse new babies in a “reading culture” by providing board books, child development materials and a library card to parents, early literacy programs for young children (such as Preschool Storytime and Toddler Tales & Tunes, where children experience music along with storytelling), and arts and literacy programs. “Strictly Teens,” the library’s webpage for youth services, offers homework help, reading lists and reviews of popular Young Adult books.
