Now on Instagram!

Now follow the Rhode Island Collection on Instagram at rhodeislandcollection for cool photographs of items from our collection.  The account is updated several times a week and showcases interesting tidbits and images as I come across them while working with patrons, processing collections or just poking around.  

Feel free to tag us in your interesting Rhode Island posts on Instagram too!  We love to see what our friends are up to while they enjoy being out and about.  History is being made now and social media helps us capture it.
