Old Capitol Books

482 Alvarado St., Monterey, CA 93940

Old Capitol Books is your local new and used bookstore. We consider ourselves a general interest bookstore, with everything from Cookbooks to Carl Jung, but we are proud to have the largest selection of books in the areas of LGBTQ+, feminism and gender, ethnic studies, and black history.

Our bookstore also has an excellent selection of fiction, SciFi, Fantasy, Mysteries, as well as non-fiction like history, current events, biographies and much more!

We enjoy helping you find just the right book, whether you are looking for a specific title or need a recommendation. Or stop by to browse our shelves for unexpected finds and hidden gems!

As an art and community space, we feature cards and artwork by local artists. We also host community events including reading and discussion groups, poetry readings and workshops, author events, music, and more!
