Fine Quality Used Books

Books For You has been open in the same location for over 31 years, and we’re proud to be a part of the local neighborhood.

WE ARE OPEN , with CDC precautions in place. We have hand sanitizer available, and are requiring customers to wear masks. We’ll have ours on, too. Please plan to practice social distancing, and we’ll let you know if we have too many people in the store and need to have you wait.

We are cautiously taking in books for trade, and are requesting that a maximum of one grocery sized bag or small box be brought in, since it will take us longer to process them. Thank you for your patience and consideration as we negotiate this new phase together.

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.
