Split Rock Books was founded in 2018 by Heidi and Michael Bender, a married couple. After over 10 years working as booksellers (and in Michael's case, as a librarian too!) in a variety of stores in New York City and beyond, they moved up to Cold Spring to open up their own store. Split Rock carries a curated selection of new books with a focus on literary fiction and non-fiction, small presses, local interest and children's books. We're also able to order most books by request. We host a variety of children's and family programming, book clubs, readings, signings and discussions. We are located steps from the Cold Spring train station, which is just over an hour from New York City. Hope to see you soon!
