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!

OPEN HOURS in the month of FEBRUARY





A warm welcome to Sharon Weinberg!

To Our Dear Customers: The Chatham Bookshop will be closed from February 28th through March 9th, in order to transition to the new owner. We will re-open on Wednesday, March 10th, at 11am. We look forward to seeing you then! If you have an urgent special order, email us and we will work out an accommodation.


Stay tuned for further notice about an Open House to say thank you and good-bye to Nicole and Thomas, and hello to Sharon – hopefully this will happen in the late Spring or early Summer!


For your convenience, you may make payment over the phone for curbside pickup, or for pickup outside of store hours if you’d 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.




Nonfiction Book Group
Second Tuesday of the Month

On the second Tuesday of each month at 7 pm, the Chatham Bookstore hosts a nonfiction book group with a focus on current affairs, history and biography. 

In February, the group began discussing The Body Keeps the Score by Bessel van der Kolk. They will finish discussion of the book at the March meeting.
