We have updated the Teen Area! The entire YA collection has been genrified, meaning that all the Romance are now together, all the Mysteries are together, all the Fantasies are together, etc. There are two work tables now, the iPad is out for use, we have plenty of seating, and a nice view out the windows. We also have weekly Take and Makes. Please ask if you have any questions! We love to give out book recommendations, and are happy to help with any school needs as well. 


  • Did you know you can get a library card on your own if you are 14 and over and can prove you live in RI?  Show us something with your name and address on it and get your card.  Get access to books, movies, audiobooks as well as streaming video, ebooks and downloadable audiobooks all for free!  Stop by today!
  • In addition to our special events throughout the year, we have weekly craft kits to take home.  Plus, you can sign up for one of our made-just-for-you book boxes. We also have a Young Adult book club for all ages. Be sure to email us at porlibteen@gmail.com for any questions or suggestions!
