The Redwood

The Redwood Library and Athenæum is the oldest lending library in the United States, and the oldest library building in continuous use in the country.

Founded in 1747 by forty-six proprietors upon the principle of "having nothing in view but the good of mankind," its mission continues over 250 years later.
The Company of the Redwood Library was established in 1747 by Abraham Redwood and a group of his friends and associates.

One of the country's earliest "public" libraries -- that is, open to the public though not "free"--Redwood is the oldest surviving lending library in the country.

Redwood remains a "membership library" (open to the public) supported by Proprietors, who own shares and pay an annual assessment, and Subscribers, who pay fees.

The Original Collection of 751 titles has grown to a collection numbering more than 160,000 volumes.
In 1833 the Library's name was changed to The Company of the Redwood Library and Athenaeum to reflect its expanding role as an educational institution.

Today the Library is open without charge to qualified scholars and researchers and to those making use of the collections.

Lectures, exhibitions, fine arts displays, and other educational activities are part of Redwood Library and Athenaeum's continuous offerings to the community.

George Wein....the Festival

In January, Festival Network still owed money to the state of Rhode Island for last year's events. When the company defaulted and the Department of Environmental Management voided the contract, Wein stepped in.

"I couldn't let the festivals die," the 83-year-old impresario said yesterday from his home in New York. "That's my life, those two festivals."
Wein said Environmental Management, which operates Fort Adams State Park in Newport, granted his request to negotiate a contract to produce the festivals. His production team has said it will be holding the folk festival July 31-Aug. 2 and the jazz festival Aug. 7-9 at Fort Adams State Park.

Wein's return comes after last year's successful folk fest, which generated fresh buzz with indie-rock acts such as Cat Power and the Black Crowes and higher attendance than in previous years.

Links to 'The Old Quarter'

Newport's storied history still thrives in the Old Quarter. Stately trees and striking 18th- and 19th-century buildings, including the country's largest collection of Colonial houses, line its charming narrow streets.

The heart of this city by the sea is packed with museums, places of worship, and other fascinating sites that document its role as America's welcoming harbor of religious freedom.

Experience the Old Quarter's living history in its galleries, shops, taverns, restaurants, and on the vibrant streets of this timeless arts-and-culture neighborhood.
