Our Story

Since 1946 The Dolphin Bookshop has distinguished itself as an independent bookstore for Port Washington, New York, a waterfront community on the North Shore of Long Island. This unique shop is a neighborhood gem which draws people from Manhattan to the east end of Long Island.

The perfect gathering place, The Dolphin has hosted book readings and signings by many distinguished authors and celebrities including J.K. Rowling. Our spacious location allows for even more events such as kids' programs, book club meetings, fundraisers, poetry readings and concerts.

We look forward to being part of the Port Washington community for years to come!
