Virtual Store History Tour


The yo-yo string of 2020 is dropping us once more into a new tense, awful moment. You might have heard that Larimer County has entered the “Red Zone” for COVID-19 cases. Due to rising case numbers and high risk situations, the county will be returning to much stricter regulations and restrictions, and we at Old Firehouse Books will be, once again, closed to the public.

Curbside pick up and delivery ARE available. Though we will no longer be allowing customers to enter the store, you CAN still drop by to pick up your books at the curb. Curbside pickup is still  available from 10am to 2pm. Deliveries will continue to happen between 5pm and 9pm on Wednesdays and Saturdays. If you have delivery questions, please read our driver’s FAQ post here.

Shipping via USPS is still the safest way for us to get books to you! You can order online and we’ll mail the books right to you.

Thank you for your patience, support, and understanding.

 Deliveries are made on Wednesday and Saturday between 5pm and 9pm. Orders must be pre-paid either through the website or over the phone. Deliveries are limited to the city of Fort Collins within these boundaries: Trilby to the south, I-25 to the east, Overland/Red Fox to the west (exceptions made for Ponds, Westgate, & Burns Ranch developments), and Richard’s Lake/Willox to the north. We are also unable to deliver to buildings on CSU campus proper, including residence halls. We apologize for the inconvenience. See the map below for our delivery area. (A note to our customers who live in apartments: If you live in a secure building with interior access to individual apartment units you will be asked to meet our driver at the exterior door of the building. Our driver will text you (or call) when they arrive. If you are not home, cannot accept delivery at that time, or cannot be reached your delivery will be left inside the exterior door at a common area if your building has one or will be returned to the store to try again the next delivery day. We appreciate your understanding and assistance in keeping contact points as low as possible for our driver and the store in general.)
For additional information on Home Deliveries please check out this FAQ.

Thank you so much for your patience, support, and understanding. If you have any questions, email us at


Donate to Our GoFundMe!

The help you have given us already has certainly made things easier and given us hope for the future. But your copious book orders (and trust us, there are a lot of them) will only keep us going for so long. If you are able to donate, even if it's just a couple of dollars, your generosity will help to cover our rent, pay our vendors, and most importantly, keep our booksellers employed. We can't thank you enough. Your support and generosity are keeping us going, keeping our spirits up,
and will see us through this crisis.

Virtual Store History Tour

Every year, Old Firehouse Books welcomes second grade classes from the local elementary schools into their store to learn about the history of Fort Collins' first firehouse. Due to covid-19, many tours had to be canceled. But you can still learn some history by watching our virtual tour! Find the playlist on YouTube!
