Congratulations to Cornucopia of Rhode Island (CORI) on their tenth anniversary!

Founded in 2005/2006 to serve Rhode Island’s library community of color, CORI celebrated its first decade on September 15 with a festive event at the Community College of Rhode Island in Warwick. The organization promotes library services to Rhode Islanders of color and supports the development of librarians and library staff of color through a variety of activities, such as providing a forum for discussing concerns; mentoring librarians and library staff; promoting multicultural library collections and services; and fostering community outreach across cultures and languages. In addition to hosting CORI Mini Conferences, they have sponsored many RILA conference presentations. CORI’s objectives are closely allied to COLA’s central goal of improving the quality of life for Rhode Islanders by supporting libraries of all kinds, so we are especially glad to have CORI representation at our monthly Board meetings.
