The Cumberland Public Library
is located at
1464 Diamond Hill Road in Cumberland, RI.
Our telephone number is (401) 333-2552
The Library is housed in a former monastery built in 1900 by Trappist Monks of the Cistercians of the Strict Observance, who left after a fire destroyed many of the buildings in 1950. The town incorporated three smaller libraries into one in 1976 by a town resolution establishing a Library Board of Trustees. The library is a member of the statewide automated library network, known as Ocean State Libraries. Here you can access the library's online catalog and place holds, check your account and renew materials. For the latest news about the Library subscribe to our library e-newsletter "Off the Shelf"
