URI Library Dedication at the Kingston Campus


URI faculty, staff, and students joined friends of the University, state legislators, and members of the Carothers family on May 1 as the Kingston Campus library was named The Robert L. Carothers Library and Learning Commons in honor of the University’s departing president.

Held in the library’s main lobby, the dedication was accompanied by warm tributes to President Carothers from Provost Donald DeHayes and URI alumni Ann Hood ’78 and James A. Hopkins ’62. As the ceremony came to a close, President Carothers released confetti into the lobby and a banner bearing the library’s new name was unveiled behind him.
