We are back in the heart of Kendall Square

Our new store is located at 314 Main Street, Cambridge, MA

Our inventory has expanded and along with our usual selection of eclectic titles, we’ll also now be carrying more general interest titles. We are also excited about our new dedicated children’s section. And of course, our shelves will be filled with titles from The MIT Press.


The MIT Press Bookstore, founded in 1980, is one of the only retail bookstores owned and operated by a university press. Located on campus – right across from the Admissions Office – we are the bookselling arm of the MIT Press, the nonprofit publishing program of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.

We showcase books and journals published by the MIT Press as well as a curated selection of other publishers’ books in related fields, including art and architecture, computer science, cognition, neuroscience, and linguistics.

The MIT Press Bookstore is dedicated to serving all ages and in 2021 the MIT Press launched two joint imprints with Candlewick Press – MITeen and MIT Kids Press. We now offer a full children’s section dedicated to showcasing these publications and fostering a love of non-fiction and learning in our younger generations.
