Into the Woods

February 28th 2-3pm

All of your favorite characters—Cinderella, Little Red Riding Hood, Jack (and his beanstalk), and the Witch—meet and interact in this whimsical original story. The musical centers on a baker and his wife who wish to have a child; Cinderella, who wishes to attend the king's festival; and Jack, who wishes his cow would give milk. When the baker and his wife learn that they cannot have a child because of a witch's curse, the two set off on a journey to break the curse and wind up changed forever.

Disney's The Little Mermaid Jr.

Coming in March...


In a magical kingdom fathoms below, the beautiful young mermaid Ariel longs to leave her ocean home to live in the world above. But first, she'll have to defy her father King Triton, make a deal with the evil sea witch Ursula, and convince Prince Eric that she’s the girl with the enchanting voice.


Adapted from Disney’s 2008 Broadway production, Disney's THE LITTLE MERMAID JR. features the hit songs "Part of Your World," "She’s in Love," and the Oscar-winning "Under the Sea."

Chris Goldstein Named 2014 Librarian of the Year!

On June 2, 2014, the Rhode Island Library Association, at the annual conference held at Salve Regina College, presented the Librarian of the Year award to Woonsocket Harris Public Library Children’s Librarian Christine Wallace Goldstein for her work on the executive board as Member-at-Large. Christine worked tirelessly all year on RILA duties, especially in coordinating RILA's third year of Money Smart Week in April, promoting free financial programs across Rhode Island Libraries and coordinating with financial agency partners. Jennifer Bond, President of RILA, presented Chris this award, describing her as “bright-eyed and bushy-tailed,” “a natural with Children’s services,” and a dedicated librarian who attended every meeting despite staff shortages in her department. Congratulations to Chris Wallace Goldstein for being honored as Rhode Island’s Librarian of the Year!
