The Newberry Bookstore carries an array of books and oddities.

Please note that the Newberry Bookstore will be closed as part of the library’s six-month renovation beginning January 2018. We look forward to reopening the bookstore in a new and improved space soon!

The Newberry Bookstore is proud to be an independent purveyor of literary gifts, cards, and toys by local artisans; an exceptional notecard and postcard assortment; and, of course, stellar books. The Newberry Bookstore is also the only library gift shop to house a Button-O-Matic button dispenser, with buttons featuring images of notable Newberry collection items.

Looking for a souvenir to commemorate your visit to the Newberry? It would be our pleasure to help you find just the right item, from lovely items bearing the Newberry logo to one-of-a-kind deaccessioned objects from the Newberry’s holdings.
