The Bryn Mawr Bookstore was founded in Cambridge, Mass., in 1971 by alumnae and is staffed by volunteers. Our mission is to provide financial assistance for scholarships and internships to Bryn Mawr students who meet need guidelines, and all profits go to the College. Over the past fifty plus (50+!) years we have donated over one million dollars to Bryn Mawr’s scholarship funds!

We sell books both at our store at 373 Huron Avenue in Cambridge, MA 02138, and online through Abe Books.

All books we sell come from donations. We do not buy books.

Please read our Donation Guidelines carefully.

  • We gratefully accept donations of books which meet our Donation Guidelines.
  • Donations are tax-deductible
  • Dealers are welcome
  • We take cash and checks, but do not take credit cards.

      You may have posted this question aeons ago, in which case, we apologize. We do, indeed, sell gift certificates, in any denomination you choose, with the sales tax paid at time of purchase. For example, a $10 GC is sold for $10.63 and the recipient may then buy $10 worth of books.


      Martha, Treasurer
