Welcome, Dear Readers!


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.
