For the Love of Books: As part of BankRI’s 4th annual children’s book drive in support of Books Are Wings, which generated nearly 2,000 books over six weeks, the Bank held a literacy event at Warwick Mall that included storytelling, craft-making, and a book swap. During the event, Sarah Clausius-Parks, Branch Manager of BankRI’s Downtown Providence office, took a moment to read to two children who stopped by to select books for their home library.

BankRI's 4th Annual Book Drive has raised nearly 2,000 books for local students.
