Books

We carry selections from local authors and artists - everything from poetry, fiction, history and memoirs to pottery and photography.

What's in our book inventory?
The store contains new books, used books, and collectibles for all reading abilities from ages 1 to 99. We purchase new books, accept donations of used books, and sell collectibles both in the store and on-line through Amazon. See "About Us" in regards to our credit for used books.

Coffee & Drinks

We offer Steamboat Coffee Roasters™ coffee, Bhakti Chai®, and Celestial Seasonings™ teas during the winter months. Come summertime we add Dr. Smoothie® smoothies, along with iced coffees and teas.

coloring books

For those of you who "secretly" enjoy coloring we have a number of coloring books, journals, and post cards created by Johanna Basford, author of the Secret Garden® collection.

calendars

We have five different calendars available at the bookstore. Several of these come from Northwest Colorado photographers Kathy Simpson and Nadja Rider.

used book for credit

We will take used books for credit. How does this work? Plan on bringing used books to the store on a day when you have time to spend in the bookstore. Why? Because we only give useable credit for that day. The useable credit can only be applied to used books currently in the store inventory. It does not apply to local authors, gift items, new books, or collectibles. For books that we can sell, you receive credit in the following increments: $1.00 - hardback, 75¢ - trade paperback, 50¢ - mass paperback.
