What does CORI do? "OUR OBJECTIVES are to promote library services to people of color within Rhode Island and the development of librarians and library staff of color."

Cornucopia of Rhode Island general membership typically meets every quarter, therefore not many meetings. Small committee groups may meet throughout the year. 

In August we have our annual cookout.  Previous locations included a friend's beach house in Jamestown, a member's home in Johnston and in most recent years at a member's home in North Kingstown, across from a beautiful hidden gem, a beach.

Cornucopia of Rhode Island: A Library Community of Color (CORI) is seeking the following officers for 2018: president, secretary, and treasurer.  Please volunteer.

Feel free to contact our president, Brenda Andrea with any questions you may have about the officer's duties or any other questions or comments.  bandrade@ccri.edu

Sample Duties of CORI Officers:
President: arrange and conduct four quarterly meetings.

Secretary:  take minutes at the meetings and making them available as necessary.

Treasurer: the treasurer is in charge of all financial aspects, accepting membership payments from members and depositing them into our account at Navigant Credit Union. The treasurer also prepares statements for the quarterly meetings and once a year files (mails a check) to the State of Rhode Island for CORI's non-profit status.
