CENTRAL FALLS, R.I.—The library in a cash-strapped Rhode Island city is rejoining the state library system after donors stepped forward to help.

Central Falls' Adams Memorial Library announced Tuesday that its borrowers will again have access to interlibrary loans once it rejoins the Ocean State Libraries system later this this week.

The move represents a major accomplishment for the library since it was forced to briefly close last summer because of the city's financial struggles.

The library reopened part-time with the help of volunteers. Beginning Thursday the library will be open six days a week.

Officials at the library call it the "little library that could" and say contributions from around the nation have helped them recover.

Central Falls filed for bankruptcy in August.
