In accord with public health advice and directives put out by the Governor of Connecticut and President Trump, the FCGSC library is closed and all of its activities are suspended. We will post updates as they become available. Please check this site regularly for further news of the awaited opening date and activities.
Stay safe and healthy, and we hope to see you soon.
A Note About this Offer:
We have received the following advisory from the Rhode Island Museum of Work & Culture:
"After much consideration, the Museum of Work & Culture has decided to postpone Salute to Spring featuring our 4th Annual Poutine Indulgence. While it is disappointing, we believe it is the best decision to help keep all of our patrons, volunteers, and staff healthy during these uncertain times.
We are already working with our participating restaurants and vendors to secure a new date and should be able to announce that soon. While we are hopeful that you will hold on to your tickets and join us in the spring/summer, we also understand if you would like your tickets refunded to you at this time. You can reach out to us directly [at 401-331-8575] to begin that process. We will also note, that should you wait and later find that you are unable to join us for the date that is selected, we will be able to process a refund at that time.
Thank you for your flexibility and understanding. We wish you the best as we all work together to navigate the weeks ahead."
