About us

Rainbow Books was initially established in 1991. The original store was in an old drive-in restaurant located on Idaho Street. We moved to our current location at 1310 West State Street in 1993.

Rainbow Books was chosen “Best of Treasure Valley” in 2003 - not only for the incredible selection, but also for our unbelievable knowledge of our stock.

Rainbow Books Idaho is Boise's best, cleanest and brightest used bookstore. Hundreds of authors and genre's - thousands of titles, and tens of thousands of books! If you have something you want or need, our knowledgeable staff can help you find it.

Please watch this website for changing hours of operation. We may have some unplanned closures due to unknown schedules. We still have not learned how to look into the future!
