Happy New Year!
It's the first day of the New Year, Jan. 1, celebrated as a national holiday. But you can still shop, eat out and find your favorite coffee in Woonsocket.
Don’t expect to conduct any town business or mail a letter, though. City Hall is closed and there is no mail service on New Year’s Day.
The public library and the senior center are closed as well. Schools will reopen on Thursday, Jan. 2.
RIPTA will operate on its holiday schedule.
