Welcome, Dear Readers!

Great news, everybody! From now until August, toys are 50% off. From disguise kits and prank glasses to jump ropes and marbles, we've got something for children (and adults!) of all ages.

Greeting cards are also on sale for up to 50% off for the rest of the summer.

Located inside the historic Newberry Library, we're an independent bookstore embodying the nerdy ethos and award-winning service of our home institution.

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

Interested in donating to the Newberry and supporting our mission to promote learning and inquiry in the humanities? With an annual gift of just $50 (or more), you’ll receive a 10% discount from the bookshop, as well as other fabulous benefits.
