CELEBRATING OVER 50 YEARS AS YOUR ORIGINAL, LOCAL, INDEPENDENT BOOKSTORE!
BookPeople of Moscow has been the Palouse region's favorite independent bookstore since 1973. Locally-owned and operated by Carol Price, Breanne Pickens, and Steffen Werner (plus a great staff team!), BookPeople of Moscow features a variety of high-quality fiction and non-fiction for readers of all ages, plus a wide selection of gifts, candles, journals, puzzles, calendars, greeting cards, and certified bean-to-bar chocolate.
BookPeople of Moscow staff members pride themselves on providing excellent customer service. We are also proud to contribute to the cultural life of our community by organizing and hosting author events, serving as a community "third place," and providing a safe place for people of all identities. We believe in the free and unfettered access to books for all people, and believe it is the individual's and parent's duty and privilege, not the government's, to choose which books to buy and read. While we do not have room for every book on our shelves, and curate our selection to cater to our customers' tastes and our own whims, we can get almost any book for customers and will do so, if it's available, when requested.
The owners of the store also take pride in providing a great working environment for our staff, paying wages that are as fair as we can manage, and providing essential benefits such as sick leave, paid time off, health care subsidies, and a matching retirement savings plan. Keeping this business profitable is a mutually beneficial project for us and the whole community, so we thank you for supporting your local bookstore!
