Accessing Local Libraries

Getting a Library Card

Out-of-state RIC students can get a library card through the Providence Public Library.

To get a library card go to the Providence Public Library with:

  • Proof that you are a RI student: student ID, course schedule, bill.
  • Photo ID: driver's license, state ID, passport, etc.

Library cards from the Providence Public Library are also Ocean State Library cards and can be used at any Ocean State Library.
