About Us

People’s Books & Culture is a thoughtful, community-driven bookstore. We have been independently owned since our inception in 1962. Twice in our history—once in 1998 and once again in 2018—our store appeared destined for closure. Twice now, people in the community helped bring PBC back to life through letters, petitions, protests, and collaboration. The bookstore was formerly named the Penn Book Center. In 2020, we renamed the store People’s Books & Culture to reflect its history and gesture toward its future.
