The Book Bin is a locally owned, family operated business that has been in the same family since 1984. Three generations currently spend their time between the Corvallis store and the two Salem stores.
Book Bin East is the most recent store, on Salem’s Lancaster Drive; it opened in the fall of 2013. While it is still growing, there is one thing we know for sure it will have soon: a coffee shop.
Corvallis and Downtown Salem both have feline mascots: Tess in Corvallis, the grandmotherly matron of the Book Bin, and Rose in Salem, who is young, frisky, and shares a birthday with H. P. Lovecraft.
