Read About Newport

Newport's Cliff WalkA really nice feature on our new website is [intlink id="1202" type="page"]Read About Newport[/intlink], a great list of recently published titles that take place in or are about Newport or Aquidneck Island.

On this page you can see a graphic of the book’s cover, a brief description and a link directly to our online catalog – so you can check to see if it’s in or place a hold (request it).
