ANNUAL EVENTS

Christmas Tree Lighting

On a Monday evening in early December, we gather under the Pavilion to light the town Christmas Tree. Marshmallows are toasted in the firepits for s’mores, while we wait for the arrival of Santa Claus.


Spring Fair

The Blueberry Patchers  4-H Club organizes this community egg hunt on Good Friday, held rain or shine. There are small animals to pet, coloring, and a storytime.


Touch-a-Truck

On a Wednesday in Mid-July, as part of our Summer Reading Program, members of the West Greenwich Police Department, Department of Public Works, and Fire and Rescue Departments bring their fire engines, police cruisers, payloader, dump trucks and other large and very special vehicles for children to explore! (Grown-ups love it too.)

SRP – Summer Reading Program

Every summer, the library sponsors a Summer Reading Program for all school-aged children, designed to combat “the summer slide,” the documented tendency for students to lose some of the academic achievement gains they made during the previous school year. Prizes, raffles, discount coupons to museums/attractions and other incentives are offered to participants for signing up and participating in this program.

Movies

We host Movies & Pizza with new and popular G and PG rated movies.  Check the online calendar or our E-Newsletter for dates, times and selections.
