Bookstore Troubadours

Mallory and Chelsea, pictured here during a recent sing-along story hour at Bank Street Bookstore, now join us twice a week: Tuesday morning at 10:30 and Wednesday afternoon at 3:00. Join us at the new store location, Broadway at West 107th Street, starting February 17 and 18 for music, movement, and stories.

Beep, Beep!

This young driver seems to be steering his fleet of buses toward Bank Street Bookstore's front door, and down the street to our soon-to-be new address on Broadway and West 107th Street. Come along for the ride!

Bank Street Bookstore Closed for Move

Bank Street Bookstore will be closed February 10-12 as we move to
2780 Broadway, on the Northeast corner of 107th Street.
We expect to be open for business at the new location on Friday Feb 13th.
Please check back on this website or call us at 212-678-1654 to confirm that we are open.

Boxed Books

The upcoming move to a new location for Bank Street Bookstore has unearthed some wonderful book finds we are distributing to schools and teachers like Melisa Stoller, an educator at IS 528. Melisa and her family braved New York City streets the day schools were closed on January 27 for the winter storm. They loaded boxes in the family van and delivered them to classrooms at Melisa's school, where they were discovered by eager students the next day.

Counting Down!

If you are anything like the Bank Street Bookstore staff, you are anxiously awaiting the opening of our new store location on Broadway at West 107th Street. The windows are still covered (below left), but we managed a photo of some of the great workers who are bringing the space to life (below right). Watch for more information and postings coming soon about upcoming events to help us welcome you to the new store.

Tuck Turns Forty

For many readers, author Natalie Babbitt's "Tuck Everlasting" is the first time they ever thought about what it would mean to live forever. "The question of what it might be like to live forever is something that everyone thinks about," says Babbitt. It is a theme that forces us to think about what is precious because we know it cannot last. To celebrate the 40th anniversary of "Tuck Everlasting," Symphony Space is staging a special reading in New York City on Sunday, January 25 with guest readers. The special edition book, released by Farrar, Straus and Giroux, is now available at Bank Street Bookstore.

To Artists Everywhere: Draw What You See

On Saturday, February 7 from 2:00 to 4:00 p.m., visit the Michael Rosenfeld Gallery, 100 Eleventh Avenue at 19th Street, to view the work of artist Benny Andrews. Benny's art is the subject of a new children's book called "Draw What You See" by Kathleen Benson. Kathleen will sign copies of her book and tea will be served. Both the book and the event are decidedly family friendly. The event is hosted by the gallery and Bank Street Center for Children's Literature.
