Community Book Center

Community Book Center (CBC) has served as a literary and cultural hub since 1983. “More than a bookstore,” CBC offers African-centered books by and about people of African decent. A meeting place for local groups, organizations and book clubs, CBC is a popular gathering place where folks come together to discuss current events.

Beginning as a home-based business with an initial investment of $300 and an inventory of 13 titles, CBC has grown today to stock more than 1,300 titles in it’s current location.
