Schoenhof's Foreign Books cover
Description Established in 1856 by German immigrants, Schoenhof's Foreign Books is the oldest foreign bookseller in the United States, and it has been at its location in Harvard Square since the early 1980s. Supplying literature and children's books in several dozen languages, along with learning materials for around 500 languages (living and dead!), Schoenhof's remains the country's definitive, independent source for your foreign language fix. Visit us or call to speak with our enthusiastic, knowledgeable, and above all, highly multilingual staff! You are also welcome to order online, although please be advised that our site is under construction; if you cannot find what you're looking for there, we are happy to assist you by phone. Special orders from individuals, libraries, organizations, and companies are all welcome.

Follow our Facebook page for information on sales, special events, new arrivals, and fun language & literature trivia! Please note that if you need to reach our customer service, the speediest way to get help is to call us at (617) 547-8855; we try to keep regular tabs on our Facebook page but we can't guarantee that your customer service need can be addressed here. Thank you!
