Welcome, Dear Readers!

Located inside the historic Newberry Library, we are an independent bookstore enbodying both the exceptional collections and nerd fun ethos of our home institution.


We have curated our book selection to reflect the Library's unique collections spanning more than six centuries of 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.
