Providence Public Library
Originally uploaded by boliyou.
The Providence Journal reports that the Providence Public Library (a private non-profit) will transfer control of its nine branches to the city.
This has been in discussion for awhile now, but the city finally agreed to take responsibility for running the branches. If the city hadn't taken over the branches, PPL had said it would have to close them.
PPL will continue to run the main library in downcity Providence.
