I love coming here, even though it’s been under construction for the entire time I’ve lived in Rhode Island. I’m very excited for it to be fully open. It’s a beautiful building and the renovation seems to be going well. There are a lot of programs that go on here, such as adult education classes, career help, book clubs, and more. It’s a very nice place to come do work, read, or use the internet if you don’t have access at home.
My daughter was married at PPL on December 15, 2018. We met with event staff a year ago to start planning. From the very start, the staff was professional, courteous and welcoming. They were always available for questions and so reassuring. We attended a tasting that we were thrilled with - and every concern we had was addressed with courtesy and professionalism. My daughter’s wedding was just perfect. Everything that was promised was delivered. The attention paid to even the smallest of details was carried out with elegance and happiness. The food was amazing. It was hot, beautifully plated and set in front of our guests with delight. I would not only recommend PPL for a wedding or event, I would strongly suggest having an event there. They are the pinnacle of a perfect experience.
