Online Shopping for Books, Gift Cards, and More!

The Ivy is closed for browsing and has ceased curbside pick-up, door-to-door deliveries, and appointments.

However -- and here's the good news! -- we're shipping books right to your doorstep! Just go to our online store or call the shop and leave a voicemail. We'll process orders from 10 - 5 each day. 

And if you need advice -- good books for your kids? something distracting & hilarious? a non-pandemic dystopian thriller? -- just leave a voicemail with your contact info and a friendly bookseller will call you back and provide a little consultation.

We've created a more curated experience, too, based on the requests we've been getting. So check out this new site as well, which features bookseller recommendations, activity kits for housebound kids, puzzles, games, and book subscriptions. And gift cards! Yes, gift cards!


Virtual Book Clubs and Events

We are excited to launch virtual book clubs and events on Zoom! Check out our calendar for more information.


Support Distance Learning for Baltimore City Students

The Ivy is proud to partner with signitover.org, a site created by two Baltimoreans seeking to support those hardest hit by the current financial crisis. #signitover is helping to match willing stimulus recipients with organizations actively providing resources to individuals and families impacted by the pandemic or with ways to support small, local businesses.

As part of this initiative, #signitover will connect The Ivy Bookshop directly with families, school districts, and partner principals to curate and mail books to students in Baltimore City under quarantine.  

To participate in this endeavor, click here. We appreciate your willingness to provide these essential resources to our community!


We miss you. Stay safe. Stay inside. Read well.
