Community Through Books

Tucked under an orange awning in the heart of Chatham’s Main Street, the Chatham Bookstore is celebrating over 40 years in the Hudson Valley building community through books.

Offering current and classic books for readers of all ages as well as a diverse selection of art supplies, the Chatham Bookstore is open seven days a week for browsing and special orders.

A long-time independent bookstore: visit us on Main Street and on facebook
