The non-academic sister store to the Seminary Co-op, 57th Street Books is located underground in an unassuming red-brick building in Hyde Park. Inside, five low-ceilinged rooms are connected by brick archways and hide dozens of small nooks where patrons can enjoy newfound reads. The shop sells a wide selection of both fiction and non-fiction general interest titles but is mostly known for its mystery, science fiction, and cookbook sections, as well as hard-to-find specialty magazines. Young patrons enjoy the cozy children’s corner filled with toys and lowered bookshelves, and family story hour is held every Wednesday at 10:30 a.m.
