Become a Steward - We host two “Little Libraries” in Pawtuxet Village. They function on the honor system; everyone contributes to ensure there are always quality books inside. However, to ensure that the library is clean, safe and kept orderly, we will need local residents to serve as stewards year-round. Click here for more about the Pawtuxet Village Little Libraries
