Named after the historic building we call home, Old Firehouse Books is a local, independent bookstore located in Fort Collins, Colorado. We sell both new books and used books, as well many other items such as journals, cards, bookish t-shirts, and socks. We work hard to have a large and diverse selection of books on our shelves. If there is a book you want and you don’t find it on our shelves, let us know and we will look into ordering it at no extra cost to you.  

Our staff is friendly and well read. Collectively, we have knowledge of a vast array of genres, including science fiction, fantasy, mystery, young adult, graphic novels, and various non-fiction subjects. We love books, and we love to help you pick the perfect one.

We take pride in being a part of both the Fort Collins community, and the independent bookselling community. We are members of the Better Business Bureau, Mountains and Plains Independent Booksellers Association, American Booksellers Association, Indie Bound, and Be Local Northern Colorado. Our store regularly partners with other Fort Collins organizations and businesses to provide the best service we can to our patrons.
