Mountain Fold Books has become a well-known spot for CC students over the course of the 1st semester. The bookstore describes themselves on their website as “a nonprofit bookstore for the arts founded in Feb, 2014 by Marina Eckler and Jonathan Fey. The mission of Mountain Fold Books is to provide access to contemporary small press publications in poetry, fiction, and visual arts through an independent reading room, bookstore, and cafe. We seek to extend public access to those books which are not widely available in the Pikes Peak region, and to voices which are underrepresented in commercial literature.” Mountain Fold Books is located at 121 E. Costilla St. and is open from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday.
