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. The store is open seven days a week from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. All proceeds from sales will help the nonprofit Library Friends & Foundation in its mission to support the Library and its services. The bookstore is staffed 56 hours a week 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. The name will also give the store a unique identity to help in its future marketing efforts and in the ability to list specialty and collectible books through online sources.
