Save Old Capitol Books

Hello everyone! Thank you for your love and support over the years.  We're thinking of innovative ways to try to stay afloat during these extremely difficult times, but we know that without extra help Monterey's Old Capitol Books won't be able to be around much longer.

This money goes into supporting your local, family run independent bookstore. We host poetry readings, philosophy reading groups, live music, experimental art performances, non-profit meetings, and so much more! Your donation will help ensure that we're able to do this for years to come.

This bookstore has been so important to us all and we know that you love the bookstore, too! 

100% of the money raised here will go into protecting the bookstore, including paying our staff so that they don't have to be worried about their job prospects in the future. Please help us protect one of California's only black owned bookstores! <3
