South Providence Library—Providence Community Library is an historic branch library building at 441 Prairie Avenue in Providence, Rhode Island. The main portion of the building is a single-story brick Colonial Revival structure, designed by Wallis Howe and built in 1930. Due to the constraints of the lot, Howe's otherwise standard design (used for constructing several other Providence branch libraries) was altered to place the building gable-end to the street.[2] The street-facing facade has been obscured by a two-level glass-faced modern addition.

The building was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1998.[1]
