Community Book Center has been an anchor in New Orleans for 33 years! It is no coincidence that “community” is within their name; step inside the doors and you are warmly welcomed by co-owners Vera and Jenn. They’ll guide you through their selection of cultural books, art, clothing, jewelry, soaps, community space, and more. Plus their new art installation, “The Baobab Tree of Knowledge & Life,” is a must see.
Locally owned businesses infuse New Orleans neighborhoods with their unique character, and are a big part of why we want to live, work, eat and shop here. The Shopkeeper Stories series shares the vision and personality of New Orleans business owners.
