Harvard Book Store

Located in the heart of Cambridge, the Harvard Book Store has been a cornerstone of the community since its establishment in 1932. This independent bookstore, unaffiliated with Harvard University, is nestled amidst the bustling streets of this scholarly city, offering a sanctuary for book lovers of all ages.


History

Founded by Mark S. Kramer, the Harvard Book Store has been serving the community for nearly 90 years. Despite the rise of digital books and major bookstore chains, the Harvard Book Store has retained its unique charm and commitment to the printed word. From the outset, it has championed a broad spectrum of books, from bestsellers to indie and academic titles, attracting a diverse clientele base of students, scholars, and literary enthusiasts.

Activities Nearby

Upon entering the store, you're plunged into a world of literature that spans several genres and languages. Browse through the vast selection of new and used books, or attend one of the frequent author events and readings. The store's Print on Demand service (Paige M. Gutenberg) even lets you print your book or a rare title within minutes.

Nearby Attractions

The Harvard Book Store's central location makes it an ideal starting point for exploring Harvard Square's other attractions. Visit the historic Harvard University campus, check out the intriguing exhibits at the Harvard Art Museums, or enjoy a performance at the American Repertory Theater.
