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! 🙂

March 22, 2020. A dark day for Browsers’ and we laid off our entire staff due to closing down during the coronavirus outbreak. Combined, they had 57 years of service to Browsers’ and they will all be missed. Note to job seekers: if Browsers’ is able to hire again in the future, we will be offering jobs to our former staff first.

Meet the staff!

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