The origins of the centuries-old library are linked to Sellarés Joan Castells, a former employee of the Gutenberg printing press in Sabadell, which in 1902 opened a bookshop in Via Massagué de Sabadell, moving in 1914 to Pedregar Street No. 12. This is the bookstore since 1956 bought Miquel Fàbregues Morlà , which came from a family of booksellers in Barcelona and Sabadell definitely rooted.
In 1957 opened a new store in the Passeig de la Plaza Mayor n º 12, of 50m2, still active, which in 1975 was devoted especially paperbacks being the first library in this field, at least in Catalonia.
In 1967 opened another location in the same Passeig de la Plaza Mayor n º 34. This because of 150m2 and kiosk at the entrance.
La Llar del Llibre of Sabadell has always been a family business, Miquel Fàbregues children: Joan, Angels, Carles Miquel and were incorporated into the vocation bookstore.
