The Book Rack will be changing its name and moving from its current location at 1801 S. College Ave to the 1881 firehouse at 232 Walnut St.
Old Firehouse Books, the business’s new name, will open April 10.
The new store will be 400 square feet larger than its current location, allowing for more books, book group meetings, author signings and community events.
The Book Rack has been in existence since 1980. The current owners, Susan Wilmer and Dick Sommerfeld, have been in the book business since 1983. Although it was initially a used-books-only store, in the past five years the store has sold new books as well. The store hosts a book club of its own and is active in the Be Local movement in Fort Collins.
