The Newberry’s bookstore, now called the Rosenberg Bookshop (in honor of two of our generous donors), 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 bookshop 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.

Associates of the Newberry at the Author Level receive a 10-percent discount on all books and other items in the store. Learn more about supporting the Newberry.

For more information, email Hours are Tuesdays – Thursdays from 10 am to 6 pm, Fridays from 10 am to 5 pm, and Saturdays from 9 am to 5 pm. The bookstore often stays open late to accommodate special events at the Newberry. The store is closed Sundays and Mondays.
