90th Party 2
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.
Party-goers were serenaded by Phillip Miller on tenor saxophone, and surprise guest Robert Baxter, who played a couple of songs on the bagpipes.
Displays of memorabilia from the store's 90 years were created throughout the space. Visitors were invited to browse photo books, correspondence, photos, and newspaper clippings.
A program for the day's festivities was created by Stephanie Leitch. Prominently displayed near it were our 'Bagley Bags' - reusable totes made from 100% recycled materials that feature commemorative artwork by Utah cartoonist Pat Bagley.
Stephanie also created a slideshow of photographs that ran continuously throughout the event and added to its historic atmosphere.
