Welcome to the Chatham Bookstore

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.

We have contemporary and classic books for readers of all ages and a diverse selection of art supplies.
A long-time independent bookstore: visit us on Main Street and on Facebook!


40% off selected books and art supplies
January 13th – January 30th

Thank you for your kind understanding over the holidays!
We will continue to have shortened hours through the beginning of 2021,
with hope for changes over the course of the year.

For convenience, you may make payment over the phone, and we can arrange pickup outside of store hours if you like. 

Please call us at 518-392-3005 during our open hours or EMAIL anytime.


We follow NYS protocols; a mask is required.

Visitors are limited to 2 at one time –
a parent and toddler, staying together, count as one.
Thank you for your patience!

Please use the hand sanitizer provided at the door and do your best
keep a six foot distance between yourself 
and others in the store.


Friendship is a sheltering tree
-Samuel Taylor Coleridge
