Mohr Library

Welcome to the Official Website of the Marian J. Mohr Memorial Library.

Mohr Library is the public library of Johnston, Rhode Island. The new facility has 20 tables, 15 public computers and laptops, over 50,000 books, video and audio recordings, and electronic readers. There is a meeting room for public use by up to 40 people, as well as quiet rooms for up to six people.

Mohr Library offers public presentations and educational programs for various age groups that are free and open to the public. Library staff perform outreach to present to schools and assisted care facilities. The Library also has a number of information resources, including helpful staff members.

There is an ongoing book sale featuring a limited selection of the Friends' offerings. It is available during library hours in the lower level hall across from the meeting room. The Friends also hold larger sales two or three times a year.

Mohr Library is a member of Ocean State Libraries, and your OSL library card, or the older CLAN card, works here and at other public libraries in Rhode Island. To get a card, you must live or own property in Rhode Island.
