Downtown Ithaca’s newest retail co-op is Buffalo Street Books (215 North Cayuga Street). Originally opened as the Bookery II in 1981, the store was renamed in 2009 and reopened as a co-op in 2011 following a massive community-wide buyout effort in 2011. Buffalo Street Books stocks thousands of titles for adults and children and hosts numerous events featuring local and national authors. Its member-owners can vote on policy-level decisions and are entitled to year-end patronage dividends as well as special offers and discounts.
