Holiday Hours

We will be open for normal hours throughout the holiday season with a few exceptions: 

Thanksgiving: Closed
Christmas Eve: 9am-5pm
Christmas Day: Closed
New Years Eve: 9am-5pm
New Year's Day: Normal Hours

Starting Friday, November 23rd, we will be changing to our Holiday Book Trade Schedule. We will only accept books brought in for trade credit Monday thru Friday strictly from 10am to 5pm. We will NOT be accepting any books brought in for trade credit on Saturdays and Sundays. If you bring books in after 5pm on weekdays or on weekends, you will be asked to return at a later date. You cannot leave your books with your name on them for later processing.

Once the holidays are over, we will resume our normal trade schedule. 

Shipping Deadlines Approacheth! 

We are fast-approaching the deadline for getting books here by Christmas!

While we try to have as much as possible of what you need on our shelves, there's always that one elusive book that's sold out or specific enough to need special ordering. We're always happy to order whatever you need us to, but ordering this close to the holidays can be tricky. While we'd love to be able to guarantee that everything will get to you before you need to wrap it and put it under some fresh greenery festooned with lights, there does come a time in December when that just becomes impossible due to the basic properites of geography and physics. (We wish we could teleport stuff directly to you, but alas--the technology has yet to be invented!)

To make your lives--and ours--easier, we've got an estimated order-by date of DECEMBER 17th!

Obviously this isn't set in stone--there's always the possiblity that something ordered after the 17th might still show up in time, but it's hard to say for sure. So come get your orders in now! 

The Holiday Gift Guide is Here! 

We're not shy about it; we think books make the best gifts. But with so many to choose from, trying to find the right one can be intimidating! To help you find the perfect book for every booklover in your life, we recommend taking a look through our Holiday Gift Guide. Specially curated for you by the Mountains and Plains Independent Booksellers Association, there are bestsellers, picture books, and everything in between--over 70 titles of fiction, non-fiction, kids, adult, teen... There's something for everyone on your list.

The best part? You'll save 15% on any title featured in the catalog (one title per day). So come find the perfect gift and save a little, too! Even Santa could use the savings!

We've been previewing the books, one a day, over on our Facebook (check out the #OFBGiftGuide tag on our page!), but you can find the whole catalog online, here (the "Categories" button at the top of the page toggles between the kids/teen and adult lists!). Call us to get books on hold or pre-order the ones that aren't out yet; visit the store; or order online! for the Holidays! 

Did you know you can gift people subscriptions?

You pick the duration--one month, three months, six months, or the whole year--and the audiobook listener in your life gets access to over 100,000 audiobooks on any of their devices at any time they want. They get credit for one free audiobook per month that you gift them, and can purchase even more audiobooks for 30% off! There's more information on's website, here! And they've created a playlist of the audiobook versions of a ton of the books in the Holiday Gift Guide--so even those readers on your list who prefer listening to paper copies won't miss out on the books we're recommending for the holidays! 

Since we're partnered with, every audiobook you subscribe for or buy through our storefront on their website helps us. So you're not only supporting a fantastic audiobook service, you're supporting us, too! It's a win-win-win for them, us, and you! 

Don't Forget Your Student Discount! 

A lot of you have taken advantage of this, but as the holiday season gets into full swing, we want to remind all college students (and faculty!)--at CSU and FRCC--that if you show us your valid student (or faculty!) ID, you'll get 15% off each item you purchase from us! This discount does not stack with other discounts, but we'll always give you the better of the discounts!
