Light switch that powers an external circuit of sorts?

Hello all!

I'm currently building a nightstand and a hanging bookshelf for over my bed. My plans are to have a light on the hanging bookshelf, and a lamp on the nightstand. However, I thought it would be fun to have a light switch installed into the nightstand to turn on and off both lights. Sadly, I don't even know where to begin. So let me know what you think, and how I can make this work. Thanks in advance!

Alright, awesome. Thanks for your help. What's the wiring between the switch and the receptacle going to be like?
