Mission Statement



The East Smithfield Public Library's mission is to provide comprehensive library services to local and remote users in a cost-effective and timely manner. In order to accomplish this mission, the library supplements its local collection with up-to-date, on-line, statewide, national, and international databases (Ocean State Libraries - OSL, Online Computer Library Catalog - OCLC, Elton B. Stephens Company - EBSCO) and the Internet. The East Smithfield Public Library's access to global information resources, cooperative efforts, shared resources, and interlibrary loan, ensures that our patrons will be able to participate in the information and technological challenges of the 21st century.
