Welcome to the Knightsville Branch

Cranston Public Library: Knightsville Branch

The Knightsville Branch initially opened in a storefront in 1927 as the Knightsville Library. For the next thirty years, the Knightsville Library could be located at various addresses along Cranston Street until a generous land donation made the construction of a new building possible. The donation, made in memory of Gerard Ruggieri, resulted in the structure that you see today.
