The OLC Kids Chess Club is a club for school age kids (ages 6-12) who love to play and learn about chess.

Much more than a bookstore...

A community for the curious.

Let's learn together.

We Offer


We specialize in technical books to feed the mind. We also carry a selection of fiction to feed the imagination. 

Games & Puzzles

We carry challenging classic and new age games. Also, physical contraptions, such as Rubik's Cubes, Tavern and Hanayama puzzles. Play them here with friends or take them home.

Group Lessons

We offer guided group lessons and other activities on a variety of topics.

Come with questions. We're here to help. As our community grows, we're looking for knowledgable folks to lead discussions and answer questions. Contact us if interested!

Learning, like physical exercise, is best done with friends. We started the Orenco Learning Club to create the ideal learning environment for incurably inquisitive minds like ours.
