Staying Healthy Together . . .

Effective immediately we will be closing the bookstore to browsing until further notice and will re-open as soon as it is safe to do so. This was not an easy decision but it is the right one. The health and well-being of our community is our number one priority and we strive to be good citizens.

BUT we are not abandoning you! We still want to provide you with the books, games, toys, puzzles and cards you need to get through this tough time! To that end we will be at the store from 11am - 3pm Monday - Saturday to recommend books over the phone or via e-mail, process on-line orders, run out to your car to give you your books, puzzles, cards etc. After 3pm we will make free front-door deliveries locally and ship your orders via half-price priority mail or free book-rate (books only) nationwide.

We expect you will be doing a lot of reading during this time, that you may need a puzzle to keep you from going bonkers, or need books, games and workbooks to keep your kids happily occupied  - we're here to help! Please reach out!

As always, if you're looking for a book that is not currently on our shelves, we'll gladly order it and have it for you in just a couple of days. If you need a suggestion for something to read, we definitely haven't run out of recommendations! Just give us a call at (401)849-2665, email us at books@islandbooksri.com or order on-line via this website. If you choose to pick up at the store it will mean parking lot pick-up, if you need delivery please note that in the comments.

We plan to up our social media game to keep in close touch with you all during this time of extreme social distancing so sign up for our weekly email, and follow us on Facebook and/or Instagram to stay tuned for more bookish information from all of us!

We are still here to provide advice for your next great read!     Be well, stay safe and happy reading!

PLEASE NOTE: Effective 03/21/20 free media mail will be sent directly from our supplier NOT from the bookstore.
