HOME             CONTACT

Barbed Wire Books, located in the historic downtown district at 504 Main Street, is Longmont’s largest book store. We are an independently owned business, selling new and used books at prices substantially less than those found in chain book stores.


Our new book section is over a thousand square feet of current titles in fiction and nonfiction.  We carry bestsellers and have a wide array of local Colorado interest books.  There's even a special section devoted to Pop-Up books!


Our used book section is extensive, comprised of many out-of-print and unique titles.  We stock everything, from Art History to Western Americana, and everything in between.  Used books range in age from near new to 100+ years old.


See our products and services page for information about trading books, locating out-of-print books, special orders, and providing classroom books.


Barbed Wire Books also carries local artists' work, Leanin' Tree cards, and hosts booksignings and other events throughout the year.  See the calendar for more details.


See our contact and coupons page for a valuable used book coupon and special deals for teachers.
