The Peace Dale Library announces the installation and dedication of new shelving in its Rhode Island History Room that was made possible by a donation from the Narragansett Cooke-Gaspee Chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution.
The shelves embody the generosity of longtime Chapter member Mary Daniel Whaley Bray, whose gifts over many years have also made possible the acquisition of numerous genealogy and local history materials. The Library’s collection includes genealogies of families with roots in southern Rhode Island, a full set of Mayflower books, Arnold’s Vital Records, and a wide variety of publications of local and statewide interest. The Rhode Island History Room is open to the public during library hours and the Library is located at 1057 Kingstown Road in South Kingstown.
A photo of those in attendance at the May 31, 2017, dedication is attached.
