Mission Statement

Mission Statement:

The orca whale is an iconic creature, playing a fundamental role in our ecosystem. Orca Books Co-op is similarly iconic and integral to the heart and soul of Olympia. It is our top priority to provide a curated selection of used, new, and out-of print books at affordable prices. Additionally, Orca Books Co-op will strengthen existing partnerships while seeking new ways of collaboration with our growing community. Through the promotion and sponsorship of events, classes, and workshops, Orca Books Co-op will foster community education, and support authors and artists. Orca Books Co-op has cultivated a space that is friendly and open. Our customers and staff come from all walks of life, forming a vibrant, supportive, and generous book-loving community. We rejoice in offering a wonderfully eccentric haven for our wonderfully eccentric patrons. Orca Books Co-op is dedicated to providing a safer and welcoming space for all and intends to contribute to the Olympia community for many years to come.
