People’s Books Cooperative is a fully member-owned, democratically-controlled and volunteer-powered bookstore, operating as a cooperative in Milwaukee, WI, since 2007.
The mission of People’s Books Cooperative is to provide books that stimulate the intellect and spirit in a way that supports the community in building a just and sustainable society. The Cooperative will serve as an example for other cooperatives and be governed in an open and democratic manner. People’s Books Cooperative was incorporated and operates according to the Wisconsin Cooperative Association Act.
People’s Books Cooperative carries thousands of books (over 18,000 + titles!), new and used, on a wide variety of topics, from Anarchism to Zen Buddhism, and all things in between. We pride ourselves on a selection you will never find in a large corporate chain. People’s can also special order books for groups or individuals, often at a discount. We also buy and sell new and used class texts for many UW-Milwaukee classes. Students receive a 10% discount on all class texts.
