Find Books, DVDs & More

Reader's advisory is a basic service where the Library provides our readers with suggestions for fiction and nonfiction titles through direct or indirect means. Whether you are looking for the next great book, want to know what fellow Rhode Island readers are checking out from the Library, or what's available for downloadable titles -- or if you want to speak with a librarian directly -- we are here to help!
