PROVIDENCE, R.I (WLNE) – Staff at the Providence Community Library is now supporting the city by helping get residents signed up for their vaccine appointments.

Eligible residence who need extra assistance to navigate online sign-ups can call any PCL location during their scheduled hours, and a staff member will input the needed information.

Assitance through the Providence Community Library is available in English and Spanish.

The PCL’s staff can sign people up at the time of calling, subject to appointment availability.

The Library cannot assist people who do not meet eligibility requirements or help book appointments at Walgreens or CVS.

“Providence Community Library is a trusted source of information and has deep relationships with families throughout the City,” said Mayor Jorge O. Elorza.

“We are excited by the opportunity to provide our residents with yet another method to register to receive a COVID-19 vaccine and remind everyone to call and book their appointment as soon as they become eligible to get the vaccine”, he continued.

Library Director Cheryl Space commented, “Over the last twelve months, we have sought to provide programs and services that bring people together and maintain a sense of community. By assisting with the vaccination process, we are now helping Providence to open up its economy and transition back to normal life.”
