90th Anniversary Celebration Scrapbook

Weller Book Works was founded as Zion Bookstore nearly 90 years ago. Over the years we’ve been known as Sam Weller’s Books and Sam Weller’s Zion Bookstore. We are in our third generation of operations, owned and managed by Tony and Catherine Weller. Our staff includes four generations of Wellers and a remarkable team of book lovers. Our bookstore sells new, used and rare books in a space built to surprise and delight you in historic Trolley Square.

We’re happy to answer your questions and help you select just the right book.

The Next 90 Years was our theme - the idea that a brick n' mortar indie bookstore is here to stay is one we hope the world will get used to. Guests gathered with us to kick off another mostly-century with food, live music, a few remarks, and a great sale on used books. Browse the links below to view photos of our celebration.
