Services and Collections

DSC06950Services offered by the library include interlibrary loan, phone renewal, photocopying and public computers (with internet access) and printers. Our primary service, however, is a helpful and friendly staff always willing to try to accommodate your individual reading, viewing and listening needs and circumstances.

The library has special strengths in local history, historic preservation, herbs and gardening.

A vibrant, interesting and useful collection is the heart of a good library. Langworthy supports local school curricula and reading lists, individual and community interests, and maintains a wide selection of titles from bestseller lists and respected review authorities, not only for print media but also music, video, DVD and recorded books. We are always happy to hear about your special interests and recommendations.

Fax service (401 539-2851) $1.00 per page.
