Pascoag Library is open 26 hours per week and is a full service library.
Patrons can borrow materials from all the public libraries in the state through the Ocean State Libraries (OSL) network. We have 16,500 volumes of hardcover fiction, non-fiction, classics, children’s books, adult and children’s DVD’s, and audio books including the latest bestsellers in both fiction and non-fiction.
Pascoag Library periodically offers early childhood literacy programs such as “Mother Goose on the Loose,” Sleepy Time Stories, and Baby Time Lapsits, Game Days, and a Lego Club. We have recently added a Teen & Tween Book Club. The Children’s Summer Reading Program is held each year in July and August. A variety of adult and family programs are also held throughout the year.

The library has copies of the “Burrillville Gazette” (Feb. 12, 1880 to March 5, 1887). From March 12, 1897 through December 19, 1899 it was called “The Herald and Burrillville News Gazette.” There is also the “Pascoag Herald” from April 1892 through April 12, 1918 and the Woonsocket Call from 1928 to 1948. Pascoag’s collection does not overlap with the new Microfilm printer recently acquired by the Jesse Smith Library.
