Store Description

Librarium (a Latin word meaning "bookcase") is a second-hand bookstore in upstate New York. We have been selling books since 1979. We have an open shop and browsers are always welcome. You may want to call before you come for hours and/or directions. We are 2-1/2 hours from both New York City and Boston, less than 5 minutes from the northernmost exit on the Taconic Parkway and exit B2 on the Berkshire Extension of the Mass Pike, not far from Albany NY and Pittsfield MA. We have a large general hardcover stock with some trade paperbound titles and paperbacks. We have a good selection of children's books but also have something in almost every subject, fiction and non-fiction. There is also a barn full of books, most of which are $2.00 and under, for browsing in the summertime only. We have picnic tables out under the apple trees in the summer, if you bring your lunch you are welcome to use them. You can contact us at 518-392-5209 or
