Central Falls Rhode Island Closes Its Public Library

Link to 6/28/2011 Providence Journal video story.  (Fingers crossed that it'll still get you there.)

Central Falls receiver closes public library, community center. (Providence Journal, 6/28/2011)

Excerpt: The library closing was a surprise to many. Betty Lemieux of the library’s Board of Trustees found out about it when a reporter called.

“When the receiver decides to do something, he pretty much decides to do it,” she said.

She said she hoped arrangements would be made to maintain the building and preserve the books inside.

“It’s a sad, sad day for the city,” she said
