Want a book about Grand Coulee Dam or the Nez Perce?

If so, the Visitor Center at Grand Coulee Dam is a great place to go.

The new "Discover Your Northwest" bookstore is located just within the lobby of the Visitor Center and is there under special arrangements with the National Park Service and the Bureau of Reclamation.

Discover Your Northwest specializes in things about the five Pacific Northwest states and is an extension of a bookstore that used to be in the NPS offices in Coulee Dam.

Paula Hatcher, who runs the bookstore, said that books about Grand Coulee Dam, the Indian tribes, and the Ice Age Floods are all very popular.

There are CDs of a number of topics available and small stuffed animals for the kids or for the young at heart.

The bookstore has been open for about two months and its popularity among those coming to the Visitor Center is growing by the day.

Discover Your Northwest is headquartered in Seattle and has a similar bookstore at Fort Spokane, and in almost 100 locations.

Bob Valen, of Grand Coulee, sits on the board of directors for the DYNW.
