The Temple Beth-El library, named in memory of its founder, Rabbi William G. Braude, is one of the most distinguished synagogue libraries in America.


The library's holdings number more than 25,000 books and periodicals, including extensive shelves of children’s literature. The offerings include a diverse assortment of newspapers, periodicals, New York Times best-sellers, current fiction and non-fiction pertaining to Jewish issues or written by Jewish authors, as well as many scholarly and research treatises. It is at the center of Beth-El’s intellectual life and is used by our religious school students and the entire community. Its Hebrew and scholarly reference volumes are well-known to students of Brown University’s Department of Religious Studies.

Refurbished in 2008 with new furniture and comfortable chairs, the William G. Braude Library is a cozy and welcoming place to study, read, or browse the shelves for the newest book by your favorite Jewish author.

The William G. Braude Library is currently being revised if you should have any question please call the main office for support 401- 331-3070
