Welcome, Dear Readers!

Located inside the historic Newberry Library, we're an independent bookstore embodying the nerdy (and fun) ethos of our home institution.


We've curated our book selection to reflect the library's unique collections spanning more than six centuries of human history in Europe and the Americas. You'll find a range of subjects, including Indigenous Studies, the art of the book, Chicago history, intelligent children's books, cartography and more.
