Our library is a vital source of information and entertainment. Aside from print and audiobooks, music CDs and movie/documentary DVDs, there are infra-red and Go-Pro cameras to borrow, toys in the Children’s Section, a telescope, binoculars, free faxing, and copies at $0.10 each! The library subscribes to close to 20 different magazines and journals. There’s free high speed wi-fi for your own laptop, or use one of the three library computers. Through inter-library loans you can get almost any book, CD or DVD from another library.

Warwick Library – from 1898 state report: “In the summer of 1815 a circulating library was organized in Warwick, a small sum being charged for the privilege of taking books. This library was kept up as a private enterprise until 1871, when it was given to the town, which had, the preceding fall, appropriated the sum of $100 towards establishing a public library. Its use now became free to all the inhabitants of the town, each family being allowed four books at a time… It was kept in rooms in a dwelling-house until January, 1895, when it was removed to a room in the new town hall building. This room is light, pleasant and convenient, but will soon be to small.” [In 1917 the Baptist Church offered its Meeting House to the Town for use as a public library, which commenced, after renovation, in 1919 on the Library’s present site; 1998 saw a major addition, bringing the building to its current configuration.]
