Visit us in Orange

Built in 1924 by the Orange Independent Order of Odd Fellows. Following the Great Depression, the building was purchased by the Orange Benevolent and Protective Order of Elks. 

In 2017, we transformed 2,000 square feet of the historic building into an accessible and adaptable bookstore, café, gallery, and multipurpose space for events and workshops.

Our café partner is Contra Coffee & Tea. They provide hand-formulated, experimental coffees and teas on tap! Drinks are dairy-free and brewed in-house.

Coming soon to Fullerton

The William Pereira designed Hunt Library was a gift to the City of Fullerton from Norton Simon and the Hunt Food and Industries Foundation in 1962.

Since, 2020, we have been working with the City of Fullerton to transform 10,000 square feet into a customizable environment with a bookstore, café, gallery, and placemaking space for events and workshops.
