Parkplace Books is an independent bookstore that opened at the Parkplace Center more than twenty years ago. It is owned by two longtime employees. The store offers new and used books, artwork and greeting cards in a large and inviting space. Along with common sections like fiction, nonfiction and cooking, customers will find a separate children's room, a small reading area with a fireplace and a section with books about the Northwest. Discounts are available for book clubs; contact the store for details.
