Welcome to Librarium

Librarium is a woman owned and run secondhand bookstore in upstate New York. Our name is a Latin word meaning "bookcase". The store was established in 1979. We have an open shop and browsers are always welcome! 


We have a large general hardcover inventory with some trade paperbound titles, paperbacks, ephemera, magazines and records. We have a good selection of art, poetry and children's books, but also have something in almost every subject, fiction and non-fiction. There is a barn full of books, as well, most of which are $2.00 or under, for browsing in the summertime only. 


We are generally open most days from 12-6, or by appointment or chance, and we are happy to have you visit the shop! You may want to call before you come to be sure someone will be here when you arrive. We are pretty flexible and can be open earlier or later if you call and make an appointment. 


We are 2-1/2 hours from both New York City and Boston, less than 5 minutes from the northernmost exit on the Taconic State Parkway and about 10 minutes from exit B2 on the Berkshire Extension of the Mass Pike, not far from Albany, NY and Pittsfield, MA. 


We have picnic tables out under the apple trees in the summer, too - if you bring your lunch you are welcome to use them for a bookshop picnic.


If you have any questions about our shop or our books, please feel free to contact us at (518) 392-5209 or [email protected].


We look forward to seeing you!
