Starting January 2nd, the segment of Walnut St. between Linden and College is scheduled to be under construction until March of 2018. This part of the street will be closed to traffic and parking during construction. Residential and delivery access will be accommodated. Sidewalks will remain open

So what is a booklover to do?

Old Firehouse Books will continue to operate during normal business hours while construction is taking place. We have a few options that will make it easier for you to continue enjoying our shop despite the construction...

Street parking:

There will still be street parking available on Linden St. as well as on Pine St. and the section of Walnut St. between Mountain and Linden. If you’re lucky, you might snag a spot!

Parking garages:

We now have 3 parking garages located just a few minutes from our store. They are:

Civic Center Parking Structure (Laporte and Mason), first hour is free

Old Town Parking Structure (Mountain and Remington), first hour is free

Firehouse Alley Parking Structure (Chestnut and Jefferson), no free hour

The city has provided Old Firehouse Books with parking vouchers to each of these parking structures. Each voucher is good for a free hour of parking. They will be distributed on a first come, first served basis. Vouchers are only for customers making a purchase at Old Firehouse Books. Please provide a ticket stub from the parking garage you are using.

***Please note: Parking vouchers for Firehouse Alley can only be used by those who paid via the FC Parking App. The voucher can only be applied to an open session. Learn more at***

Order from home, pick up at the Bean Cycle!

Starting in early January, Old Firehouse Books will have a pop-up store selling a select stock of books at The Bean Cycle. To make things as convenient as possible for our patrons, we are offering this as an alternative pick up location for special orders and holds. This is great if you know exactly what book you are looking for.

Feel free to call the store to check on a book’s availability or place an order on our website. Just be sure to let us know where you’d like to pick your book up. We can even ship it to you for a minimal shipping fee! Click here to read more about online ordering.

***Please be aware: While a book may appear on our website, there is a chance it is no longer in print. Likewise, even if a book’s availability is listed as “On Our Shelves Now” it is always best to call the store and check. The inventory on our website is maintained by the American Booksellers Association and is not always accurate.***
