New Reading Garden

In honor of the Newport Garden Club’s centennial anniversary, a reading garden has been designed at the Newport Public Library in Aquidneck Park. The plan includes a landscaped island, ADA-compliant walkways and benches. The library has increased its wireless internet signal for visitors to use in the reading garden. The community is invited to participate through the city’s Memorial/Commemorative Bench Program, where citizens can underwrite benches or buy small trees through the city’s subsidized tree program. The project is expected to be completed this summer.
