CENTRAL FALLS â€” Call it a textbook definition of volunteerism. Thanks to a group of people who are donating their time, Central Falls residents will once again have access to the city's public library, which was recently closed due to the severe budget crisis.
Beginning Monday, Aug. 1, the Adams Memorial Library, at 205 Central Avenue, will be open from 12 noon to 5 p.m. on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays.
While the hours are now limited, Adams Board member Tom Shannahan is hoping to expand the schedule if more volunteers are willing to come forward to help out.
