The Tiverton Library Foundation appreciates the vital role of donors in creating the new Tiverton Public Library, the “Crown Jewel” of Rhode Island’s public library system.  It is the heart of our community - a welcoming place for individuals and groups to read, work, relax, learn and meet for socializing and for exchanging ideas.

The Foundation reinforces the essential need for public support, and works to supplement this with additional funding from foundations, businesses, organizations and individuals.

Your donation can ensure the long-term vitality of the Library to transform people’s lives. Your gift can provide equipment, materials, and programs to educate, entertain and enrich the lives of all.

The Foundation is a 501(c)(3) not for profit corporation governed by a volunteer Board of Directors. All gifts are tax-deductible to the full extent of the law.


Fund 3 large mosaic Murals that reflect the essence of Tiverton.  Famed ceramic artists Mika Seeger and Peter Geisser will engage the community in their design, production and installation.  Please contact the Foundation if you are interested in any aspect of the project.  Naming Opportunities are also available.
