    Providence Community Library (PCL), a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization, assumed management of Providence’s nine neighborhood libraries in July 2009 after the Providence Public Library determined that it lacked the resources to manage its branches. In response to Providence Public Library’s move to close its branches and reduce services, a dedicated group of volunteers established PCL and sought city support to manage all nine neighborhood libraries. The City of Providence, opposed to PPL’s planned closings, took control of the nine branches and assigned their management to PCL on July 1, 2009. All nine libraries re-opened that day, ensuring that all Providence residents would continue to have access to libraries in their communities. PCL immediately became the largest library system in the state and, in effect, the city’s second largest free educational institution after the Providence Public School Department.
