Cliffhanger Used Books

Open daily from 10 AM to 4 PM.

Cliffhanger Used Books is located at 191 West Riverside Drive in Estes Park, next to the Post Office. This used bookstore features thousands of gently-used books, DVDs, and music CDs. All proceeds from sales help the nonprofit Friends of the Library Foundation in its mission to support the Estes Valley Library and its services. The bookstore is staffed by a team of volunteers who are eager to welcome shoppers to the ever-changing inventory.

What’s behind the name, Cliffhanger Used Books? The name is inspired to convey the excitement of a page-turning suspense yarn, with a whimsical nod to our elevated local geography. Cliffhanger has been serving the community since April of 2019.

How to Donate Materials to Cliffhanger

Used book donations may be dropped off inside the store site at 191 W. Riverside Drive, next to the Estes Park Post Office. Book and materials donations are no longer being received at the Library’s Elkhorn Avenue location.

Drop-Off Hours at 191 W. Riverside Drive are:

7 days a week, from 10 AM to 4 PM.

The Friends of the Library Foundation used book sales raise tens of thousands of dollars each year to help support programs, services, and special projects that raise library services to a higher standard of excellence. Your generous donations of materials for use in the sales helps to support the library for years to come. You can help us further by not donating materials that will not be used in the sales, and that will cause us to incur costs for disposal.
