A sister store to the more intellectual Seminary Co-Op Books, 57th Street Books is a surprisingly large, yet cozy shop nestled in the basement of a Hyde Park apartment building. While the store's wide and general variety will rarely disappoint, it is especially lauded for its robust children's section, as well as a noteworthy selection of local authors. The shop also hosts occasional events, author signings, and book clubs.

This is the best bookstore with extensive number of books! The staff are extremely knowledgeable and helpful. My children and I visit the bookstore regularly!
This is absolutely one of my daughter favorite stores to visit in Hyde Park. We go here at least once a quarter. They have a great selection of unique and interesting books to choose from. Its tucked away on a quite street, that in the spring time is a beautiful walk not to far from Washington Park.
