Century Books is an independent used bookstore and art gallery located at the newly designated landmark district in Pasadena, at the beautiful Green Street Village.  Our charming shop offers a wide array of books in subject areas of both fiction and non-fiction, such as history, science, religion, arts, classic literature, ballet, children's books, culinary arts, travel, sporting books, and more. 

We regularly host events, including live jazz music, classical concerts, art openings, readings, lectures, and literary events. 


We are looking forward to see you on your next visit to Pasadena!
