Fine Quality Used Books

Books For You has been open in the same location for over 32 years, and we’re proud to be a part of the local neighborhood.

Our emphasis is readership fiction, but we have a great selection of Colorado and western history books, lots of vintage books, a good military section, plus art, crafts, new age, religions, and lots more.

At this time we are not requiring masks, but we continue to offer hand sanitizer, and request your respect in social distancing.

We are taking in books for trade, and are requesting that a maximum of two or three  grocery sized bags or small boxes be brought in. Thank you for your consideration.
