The Library has adapted its offerings to provide dozens of online programs for community members at home, including photoshop tutorials, help for small businesses, coding clubs, and early literacy programs. Earlier this month, RHPL also launched its first-ever Virtual Reference Desk for kids, allowing school-aged kids the opportunity to connect face-to-face with a Librarian and get homework help online.
