About the Brownell Public Library
The Brownell Library, built in 1929, was bequeathed to the people of Little Compton by Mr. Pardon Brownell when he died in 1921. In 1963 the stack addition was added and the town’s public library was removed from the town hall and physically combined with the Brownell Library. Since that time the Trustees of the Brownell Trust provide maintenance and repair of the building. Through the town annual appropriations, the taxpayers provide the funds for staffing, books and supplies.
There are always things happening at Brownell Library, check back often.
A wide variety of merit-based scholarships are available from the Little Compton Garden Club through the Garden Club of America. Students are encouraged to contact the Brownell Library to find out more about these opportunities as well as other Scholarships that might be available.
