History Established in 1991 Rainbow Books was originally located on Idaho Street in an old drive in restaurant building. It was moved to it’s current location at 1310 West State Street in 1993 and continues to add more shelves for more books all the time. Rainbow Books was chosen “Best of Treasure Valley” in 2003. not only for it’s incredible selection, but also because of the staff’s unbelievable knowledge of its stock. In July of 2010, Rainbow Books Idaho began selling books online through Amazon. Books that are listed online are not kept at the store due to space limitations, but if you find one that you are interested in, give us a call and we can arrange store pick-up and a discount on the sale. Meet the Business Owner:
Lauren D. Laurie moved with her family to Boise in 1989. Finding the store shortly after that was a dream come true. Her love of books and knowledge were a perfect match for a little store that needed care and resurrecting. Many long hours of cleaning and sorting and her husband, Robb, building shelves brought the little corner store back to life. It was not long before it outgrew the small corner and the current property was purchased. Again the re-arranging and construction of many more shelves began and soon it became the store it is today. In 1999 when Megan, our daughter was born, the time came for more help. With unbelievable fate, Lindy was there to take the call. She also had a new son, and together they split the hours needed at the store and have become the ‘dynamic duo’ of used bookstores. There are only good things happening here!
