The newly remodeled bookstore is operated by Eastern National, a partner of the National Park Service, that sells books, and other educational materials. Many titles are newly published works on Abraham Lincoln. Eastern National operates many other bookstores at national park sites throughout the country. Proceeds from the sales support Ford's Theatre National Historic Site.
