Scholarship

On Wednesday, June 1, 2016, Let’s Read Rhode Island granted it’s first scholarship to North Kingstown High School Senior, Clara Crawford. The $1000 award, sponsored by Massage Envy East Greenwich and Pier Pizza Company, is Let’s Read RI’s first foray into extending it’s mission to young adults and is hopefully the first of many awards to be granted in years to come. Clara will be attending the University of Rhode Island majoring in the field of Public Relations and Marketing in the Fall of 2016 and we feel privileged to support her on her journey.

Bridging The Gap

In partnership with Bridging the Gap, LRRI has stocked community free libraries at Kings Crossing and Heritage Housing Developments. Children from these communities no longer have to wait for a ride to the local library to get something new to read. With a short walk, they will have over 100 books to choose from ranging from fun fiction to educational non-fiction. These libraries will be run on the traditional borrow and return system and LRRI will add titles to grow these libraries over the next year.

Library Summer Programs

LRRI is excited to announce that our bookmark reward program will be extended to participants of the North Kingstown and Davisville Public Libraries this summer. Children that enrolled in either libraries summer reading programs will receive bookmarks as they meet their weekly reading goals redeemable for a slice of pizza at Pier Pizza NK.

Summer Bookbags now available at the Southern Rhode Island Chamber of Commerce.  Purchase online coming soon.

Stay tuned for more info on the bags as well as summer events LRRI will be at with our table, bags and books!
