Wishing you a very Merry Christmas and a Happy and Healthy New Year

Welcome to the Book Center

The Book Center, Located in Historic Downtown Cumberland, Maryland. We offer a full line of general interest and regional/local history titles along with the latest best-sellers.

Our business began over 50 years ago as a magazine wholesaler and newsstand, and we continue that connection today - offering the areas' largest magazine selection, a wide variety of out of town daily and Sunday newspapers, Maryland lottery tickets, and two wall humidors full of premium cigars.

Our first love, though, is books - and we hope that you find our store and our website interesting.
