On 23 May 2022, the University Bookstore opened in the Faculty of Social Studies building. This new space is where culture and academic work come together. During breaks between lectures, you can find books published by the University of Gdańsk Press and other academic publishers, books of popular scholarship, or of literature – and you can enjoy a cup of coffee or tea at the same time. This space will host meetings with writers promoting University of Gdańsk Press books. And on the wide steps, where there are electric sockets installed, students and university employees can take a moment’s rest or do some work.
The café section of the bookstore – Książka i Kawa (Book and Coffee) – treats guests to the fine aromas of teas and coffees from beans that come from the best roasters in Poland.
We firmly believe that in the age of the Internet, the spread of e-books and forms of availability such as open access, the physical book and other printed publications remain something special and have in them something that will never be replaced by any electronic file. That is why we want to surround ourselves with them, and we hope that this space, built, as it were, of books, will also inspire those who visit it so that they succumb to the charms of these traditional books and want to take them home with them.
For those who are looking not just for books, the bookstore also offers original University of Gdańsk promotional merchandise. Here you can buy sweatshirts, tee-shirts, mugs, notebooks, bags, and much else that can make a good present or a souvenir for those who visit our campus.
We want our readers and guests to create a space with us, to join in the events we organize here, and to send us short reviews and recommendations about the books on offer in the bookstore. We also welcome readers’ ideas and suggestions about our range of books. To participate, all you have to do is join our Readers’ Club or to like us on one of our social portals.
