Being an indie bookstore is about more than books – it’s about connection and empowerment through storytelling through all mediums. The mission of Wild Lark Books is to build a community of Book-Lovers Who Support Storytellers.
In this mission, we:
- Sell books both in the bookshop and in the online bookstore
- Provide free community events
- Serve as a publishing house to bring authentic stories to shelves and support authors as artists
- Break down barriers through the Wild Lark Books Fund (a 501c3 nonprofit organization)
Help take us to the next chapter!
Wild Lark Books is aiming higher and looking to our future – but we need funding to get there.
Money Raised Goes Towards: publishing endeavors, community programming, book promotions, bookstore community events, supporting local artists, storytelling contests, ensuring extended operating hours and expenses, and so much more planned for 2023!
