More than a book store". Featuring African-centered books, art, fabric, gifts and more. Available to schools, churches, community events for storytelling, book clubs, performance venue, meeting space and book fairs. Will do special orders.
The Community Book Center, a locally owned bookstore, is focused on celebrating the heritage and tradition of these vibrant and historic communities. The Community Book Center hosts monthly story telling events for area students, film showings, group discussions, while also serving as a meeting place for local charter schools and community groups. As much as the Community Book Center is a bookstore, it is also a community institution with deep roots in these neighborhoods, and is very dedicated to supporting its neighbors.
