I should be happy for this since it’s another way to encourage and inspire readers or would-be readers to read all summer long.

As of July 1, 2012 Providence Community Library became the new home of the Statewide Reference Resource Center (SRRC). The SRRC provides quality reference services, online databases and electronic resources to everyone in Rhode Island.
As host to the SRRC, PCL will provide technical support for statewide online electronic resources and AskRI.org (the portal to access those online electronic resources), marketing and publicity for AskRI and its resources, and education for library staff and the general public on the use of AskRI. PCL will also provide reference services to all Rhode Islanders and Rhode Island libraries. These reference services are available to the general public via email, chat, or phone every day but Sunday.
AskRI.org has a wealth of free, online education resources and services available. Just whatâ€™s so great about the AskRI.org resources?
The Broadband Rhode Island (BBRI) Digital Literacy program aims to educate Rhode Islanders who lack access to and information about technology through a freely available curriculum, volunteer instructors, and face-to-face classes based in communities and locations where the need for digital literacy education is highest.

1. Quality time with the kids. A family outing or just dad and the kids may start with breakfast at home or at his favorite diner or coffee shop followed by an afternoon outing like a trip to the beach, park, or museum. My husband loves having bagels and lox at home as much as dining out at the Modern Diner in Pawtucket or Julian’s on the West Side.
2. An event. Give a gift-certificate (for two, if it includes you) to his favorite local restaurant or tickets to a sports game or music concert.
