Browsers’ Bookstore was founded in 2001 in Corvallis, Oregon. In 2006 we bought the 15-year-old Albany Book Company (in the old Shakey’s Pizza building). We have no plans for a third store…two is enough work! 🙂

We have a commitment to the environment: not only are we re-using products made of a renewable resource (paper), but the Albany store is almost completely solar-powered, and both stores offer a free book recycling service to the community.  (No, you cannot throw your books in the mixed-recycle bin at home.)

If you are looking for employment, please “like” us on Facebook–all job postings go there.

Meet the staff!

Scott Givens

I love the older books. My collection at home is mostly the classics, although I have a growing Terry Pratchett collection.



I collect everything from Thomas Browne to books about miniature golf.



I love zombie books!

Why read anything other than the holy trinity of P.G. Wodehouse, Rex Stout, and Jane Austen?
