The Newberry Bookstore carries an array of books and oddities.

Newly reopened as a Newberry-run book and gift shop, the Newberry Bookstore sells merchandise highlighting the library’s incredible collections. The bookstore is proud to be independent and embedded within its particular neighborhood and the city of Chicago at large. As such, it boasts 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.
