The Providence Athenaeum is an independent membership library that opened on Benefit Street in 1838; it’s progenitor was an earlier library, The Providence Library Company, founded in 1753. The library has played a key role in defining the cultural, intellectural and social life of Rhode Island. In its early years, it had a role in shaping America itself.

The Athenaeum is remarkable for its wide-ranging collections, its wonderful building and, most importantly, the people who know and love it.
