The Middletown Public Library and all public libraries in RI are currently closed to the public due to the COVID-19 pandemic.  Important information for library services:

  • Due Dates – All due dates on current loans have been extended to May 1.  You DO NOT need to return materials until we re-open.  Please hold onto them and enjoy them during this time.
  • Fines – Libraries have agreed to waive fines from March 1 through the end of this public health crisis.
  • Holds – Ocean State Libraries has disabled the ability for patrons to place holds from the catalog so that we don’t create false expectations for when holds may be able to be picked-up.  Holds that are currently on our shelves waiting to be picked-up will be available for up to one week after re-opening.
  • Library Cards – We have extended the expiration dates for all patrons set to expire between March 1 and April 30 to May 1.
  • Donations – DO NOT drop donations into our return bins.  DO NOT leave donations outside the library.  We cannot safely handle donations at this time.
  • Digital Content – The investment on ebooks and audiobooks in OSl’s eZone will be expanded so that patrons can continue to enjoy books and reading.

Ocean State Libraries is also working in partnership with the Rhode Island Office of Library & Information Services. They are developing a collection of online resources for students and families to help all Rhode Islanders meet their learning and recreational needs from home. https://olis-ri.libguides.com/online 

Please visit the Ocean State Libraries website for information on COVID-19 and its impact on the Rhode Island Public Library system.
Please check the FAQs for information about expired library cards, due dates, fines, and more.  This page will be updated regularly.
