About Us

Since 1977, Park Road Books has been Charlotte’s Favorite Bookstore. Located in the Park Road Shopping Center, we have been independently owned and operated for 40 years, and today we are the only independent bookstore in Charlotte carrying only new books. The winner of Creative Loafing’s Best of the Best awards on a yearly basis, we are part of the community, hosting author events and local bookclubs, and strive to provide the best customer experience possible to our Charlotte family. Stop by today to browse our selection and meet our store dog, Yola, and be sure check out our feature article in the Charlotte Agenda.


Please note that while we do have a consignment program for small press and self-published books. We do not buy or trade used books.
