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!


WEDNESDAY through SUNDAY 11 am-3 pm


Call 518-392-3005 during our open hours or EMAIL a query
or special order anytime; we’ll try to respond within a day.

We offer gift wrap, shipping and no-contact pickup!


We follow NYS protocols; a mask is required.

Visitors are limited to 7 at one time –
a parent and toddler, staying together, count as one.
You may be asked to wait outside; wait times are generally under a few minutes.
Thank you for your patience!
