The New System is LIVE!

Dan Abrams is Here Tonight!  

Summer Programs are Here! 

Manhattan Beach Ticket Preorder Deal!

Attention Old Firehouse Patrons! We have A Brief Announcement:

Our new point of sale system is now live! We're very excited about this upgrade, but it's a lot to learn. We're going slow and steady, so please bear with us as we work to getting back up to speed. It's going to be such an improvement over the old system once we all know what we're doing again!

Thank you so much for your patience. And thanks, as always, for being the best patrons we could ask for!

Tickets for An Evening with ABC's Dan Abrams are still available! 

ABC's cheif legal correspondent will be joining us at the Fort Collins Hilton on June 19th at 7pm to talk about his new book Lincoln's Last Trial, the true story of Abraham Lincoln’s last murder trial, a case in which he had deep personal involvement and which played out in the nation’ newspapers as he began his presidential campaign. It is a moment in history that shines a light on our legal system, as in this case Lincoln fought a legal battle that remains incredibly relevant today.

Tickets cost $5 per person and act as a five-dollar off coupon when buying a copy of the book. You can no longer purchase tickets online, in the store, or over the phone, but tickets can still be bought at the door

Summer is upon us, and that means the Summer Reading Programs and a slew of other fun, bookish summer activities are here! Sign ups for the annual Kids and Teen/Adult Reading Progams open--session one is almost over, but you can still sign up for session two! The return of Where's Waldo Local, and the similar-but-oh-so-different Bard in the Bar will go live in July. And the Writers Workshop has returned, better than ever, and will continue through the summer!

This year's Fort Collins Reads book for 2018 has been announced:

Manhattan Beach, by Jennifer Egan! 

Are you excited? So are we! That's why we're offering a special deal for this year's Fort Collins Reads author. As of May 22nd, customers who pre-purchase Manhattan Beach in paperback will also be able to pre-purchase a General Admission ticket ($10 each) to the event on November 4th. Customers will also receive 20% off the book! Books can be picked up in store starting June 5th but tickets can only be picked up starting September 4th. 

Please note: This is a strict one book, one ticket deal. Any additional tickets can be purchased starting September 4th. 

This deal is only available until June 30th, and only available over the phone or in the store--sorry, online shoppers, but the tickets go through a second system, not ours, and we've only got it up in the store. But don't miss out on this chance to purchase your ticket in advance and make sure you'll have a seat on November 4th!
