Comer Book Drive

57th Street Books and the Seminary Co-op Bookstore are proud partners of Virtue Restaurant’s “Get Up and Give” Holiday Virtual Toy Drive

Now through December 18


The holiday season is approaching and Comer Children’s Hospital remains committed to bringing comfort and joy during this time to their patients and families. Give the children of UChicago Medicine Comer Children’s Hospital a joyful holiday season while supporting local Hyde Park businesses. Your purchase of a 57th Street Books gift card in any denomination will allow us to provide a selection of the board books, picture books, and early reader books most in need for Comer patients. Simply purchase a gift card in any amount and indicate in the Order Comments field that it's for the Comer Book Drive. We'll hand pick the perfect books to brighten the bookshelves of these kids' rooms this season.


Flip through our Children's Holiday Guide to see some of the wonderful titles going to these young readers! Your gift will make a difference in the life of a child who has acutely experienced the hardships of the pandemic while undergoing medical care this year – bringing joy to children and families in need of holiday cheer and a reason to smile.
