About Us:

Spring Street Bookstore is located in the one of the oldest parts of Newport. The street was named for the spring that provided drinking water to the city. We are located one block from the Touro Synagogue, one of the oldest continuous congregations in the United States. We are also one block from the oldest house in Newport the Wanton-Lyman-Hazard House was built ca 1675. The very lively waterfront with shopping, dining and entertainment is a short walk from our door.


We started life as an on-line bookstore under the name of Powel Avenue Books. With the opening of the store we felt is was appropriate to change the name but not the fine quality service our customers have come to expect. We are carrying a mix of new and used books in the store. We accept Visa, Master Card, and Discover. Store hours for the are: Monday-Saturday 10:00 am to 5:00 pm  Closed on Tuesdays and Sunday 10:00 am to 3:00 pm.


If you are in the area please stop in to say hello. Can't make it to Newport? Then drop us an E-Mail with any questions you might have, or give us a call at 401-619-3323. We do not list the entire inventory on-line so we might have what you want, please ask.
