The Book Rack Bookstore, a Local Favorite in the Heart of Newburyport
The Book Rack Bookstore is a local favorite located in the heart of downtown Newburyport. With a Mom & Pop feel, The Book Rack carries a variety of fiction, non-fiction, children’s books and carefully chosen specialty books. With Atomic Café right next door and a shared open space you can buy a cup of locally-roasted coffee and browse for books at the same time!
The Book Rack was opened in 1972, owned and operated by Virginia White where the shop thrived as a local favorite until her retirement. Robert W. Hugo of Marblehead’s Spirit of 76’ Bookstore bought the shop and has been true to Virginia’s original vision ever since.
The little shop on the corner embodies the feeling of a neighborhood bookstore with a selection of a larger retailer. Their selection of current book choices includes literary and genre Fiction, Non-Fiction (ranging from American and world history to Nature & Science to popular psychology and alternative spirituality), and children’s literature for all ages! Don’t miss the bargain priced selection of books for those on budget, the ‘staff picks’ section of employee favorites and the wide array of historical books featuring towns and information on the north shore of Massachusetts.
