Established in 2007 Garfield Book Company at PLU is owned and operated by Pacific Lutheran University. PLU opened the store on historic Garfield Street in 2007 to serve not only the PLU campus but also the surrounding community. The store is a physical reminder of PLU's committment to serve the Parkland community. Garfield Book Company and the Garfield Commons development (a joint project of PLU and Lorig Associates) was intended to better the development of Garfield Street and Parkland, while also providing much needed business services and programming. Garfield Book Company stays true to its community identity by maintaining formal partnerships with the Franklin Pierce School District, Bethel School District, Garfield Street Business Association, FPS Chamber of Commerce, and others. Garfield Book Company also donates to many local non-profit organizations.
Our mission is to inspire others to read, learn, and grow to better serve our community and our world.
