Since 1989, the Biomes Marine Biology Center has immersed visitors of all ages in the lives of sea creatures through a range of hands-on programs. Though it recently moved to a new location, it has kept aquatic habitats focused on the denizens of Narragansett Bay and the Atlantic Ocean. Amid tanks of native and tropical species such as octopuses, horseshoe crabs, lionfish, tortoises, and sharks, the staff treats visitors to a range of events—including educational demonstrations and hermit-crab-socialization seminars.
In a separate area for kids aged 3–6 , staff members lead animal-themed story times, and walk children through corresponding craft projects afterward. They also organize birthday parties, during which kids can pet tide-pool animals such as eels, horseshoe crabs, and small sharks.
AudioGO is a bottomless virtual bookstore, abounding with dramatized audiobook recordings of bestselling, classic, and newly released works. Its online apparatus enables visitors to rifle through selections by category—including thrilling mysteries, fascinating autobiographies, and steamy romance novels—which they can choose to download immediately or order on CD. The bookseller also has exclusive rights to a comprehensive selection of unabridged Agatha Christie novels and a 38-title boxed set of The Complete Arkangel Shakespeare.
In addition to literature, the site features a variety of BBC radio productions, including radio-theatre shows and interviews with historical legends—from Roald Dahl talking about writing to Ben Franklin discussing his favourite recipe for low-fat muesli. Its original audio production of The Lincoln-Douglas Debates was even nominated for the Best Spoken Word Album at the 2010 Grammy Awards.
After nearly getting his teeth kicked in by an errant hoof, Stephen Briggs decided that it was probably a good time to walk away from his rodeo career. Bidding his favorite rodeo clowns goodbye, Stephen joined the family business started by his father, Frederick Alvin Briggs—called "Allie" by his customers—more than 30 years ago.
Continuing in his father's footsteps, Stephen now oversees Allie's Store, where his team supplies horse tack, Western and work apparel, and supplies for creatures that range from farm animals to pets. Under Stephen's leadership, Allie's Store now also stocks all-natural animal foods, due to increased customer requests for healthier food for their pets. The shelves display bagged edibles from lines such as Earthborn Holistic and Blue Buffalo. This is the same food the Briggs family feeds its own pets—two dogs, two cats, and four horses named Jessie, Oso, Buddy, and Hoss who exchange local gossip with customers at the adjacent barn.
