Help in cDNA library construction

I am new in the field of molecular biology and I am attempting
to construct a cDNA library from the Drosophila CNS as a means 
to isolate and identify cell-specific mRNA sequences. I am 
looking for a kit or a high-yield method for directional cDNA 
library construction starting from a small amount of total RNA. 
However, I would prefer not to use a method based on PCR 
amplification. Do you have any ideas on possible techniques 
(particularly the first step of reverse transcription) or have 
had any luck with a commercially available kit? Thank you for 
any suggestions you might have.
