Question: How long does it take if you order a book?
Answer: If the Bristol library doesn’t have the book you’re looking for (because it’s not in our inventory or currently checked out), but it is available at one of the other Rhode Island public libraries (there are 71(!) member library sites), it should take 3 to 5 days.
New books and “bestsellers” may take much longer even if many libraries have a copy, so be sure and let us know if you’d like to be put on the waiting list as soon as possible. Things move fast and it’s always great to get that notice in your mailbox: “Your book has arrived”.
